Megabots – robotic tech for entertainment

Megabots showing off their latest work, which is also starting up on Kickstarter and has serious interest/backing from Autodesk.   An engineering match made in heaven.  Only a turret so far, but tracks are on the way and walking is in the plan.

On a technical note: We’ve already started combing through the research paper they are using to help make it walk.  Doesn’t seem there is any reference to gyroscopic stabilisation beyond managing poses to keep things steady, so this should be interesting.
