Robotic Legs Photo Addendum

Last Friday’s blog post reviewed research on Cyborg Insects. To illustrate the relative simplicity of developing cyborgs, as opposed to robots, I offer this glimpse of robotic legs--just legs, our son’s senior project in Mechanical Engineering.

A team of five students, guided by a faculty member and grad assistant, devoted a year (ok, only 6 credit hours) to producing these legs, which did in fact walk (more or less). No one tallied the lines of computer code that were written.
