Matt Denton wrote:This is a similar idea that I have been pondering.. I would be interested to see how this works out. So do you plan to cast your own rubber feet impregnated with powder?
foot of hexapod goes in here
The whole construction goes into the rubber feet supplied by the MSR-01 kit.
! = drinking straw
# = carbon powder
\_| = bent paperclip
= = invisible tape
