We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Prodos is the second prototype robot from Project Biped (www.projectbiped.com) whose goal is to create an open source 3D printed dynamically balancing walking robot. Prodos was designed to demonstrate how to coordinate simple limb chain actuation using a microcontroller. It has 8 degrees of freedom (joints) and can perform a simple walking action. The servos used were selected for economy and aren't powerful enough to bear the robot's own weight, so Prodos must be externally supported while it is executing its walking action. See a video of Prodos in action at www.projectbiped.com/prototypes/prodos/walking-analysis
Prodos has the following features:
Uses an Arduino Duemilanove microcontroller
User interface via OLED display and 4 button panel
8 degrees of freedom
Detailed assembly instructions

So what's this mean?
We're sure jdow would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
