Mr Woo´s robots
March 8, 2009
A while a ago i stumbled over the story of the amazing Mr Woo of China. He reminded me of Franz Gsellmann, who i wrote about in an earlier post.
Mr Woo has no formal training at all, but builds amazing robots out of scrap materials. They are all called Woo after him and numbered (Woo1, Woo2 etc). There is a robotic dog, a tea pouring robot and Woo22 the newest model, can pull Mr Woos rickshaw to the market.
Those robots are really an incredible accomplishment. Especially considering the conditions and difficult of the robots. I remember an article a while ago which talked about how to design walking robots was one of the most difficult parts of robot-making.
