I'm not going to spend much time writing on my first post here. Since I've already spent an hour of trying to make a "workshop video" My first take was just to long. But this one is about 10:23. At the end I'm demonstrating my work on my very first SES based biped. I'm using a new Atom Pro board from Basic Micro called ARC-32, you can find more information about it here.
Video, take 1:
Some pictures of the biped, codename "ICS" (Internal Cog Shifter). It doesn't look very good or impressive at the moment. Simply because I want the kinematics and walking to work before I start on the design.
The ARC-32 board are mounted on a slider. The main idea was to make it easier to shift the COG from one side to another without needing to translate the body to much. A closer picture of the slider part:
I'll update this thread when I've done some more progress.
although their claims of needing 32 bit math and IK only being possible on PC's up until now are pretty ridiculous, my first IK engine ran on an 8 bit pic! Still, I would like to have a play with one at some point
