• Animatronic Beaver

    I ahve always been fasinated by human machine interactions. Watching how R2D2 woudl interact in the Star Wars movies showed me one example of robot human interaction. To look at this some more I spent time developing a reproducable fame for a small animatroinc creature. In my case the first prototype is an animatronic beaver in honor of OSU.

January 29, 2013 - I finished the skeleton for the animatronic Beaver today. Go me.

January 27, 2013 - I'm working on a skeleton design for a small animatronic beaver for use at OSU. I'm trying to make a system that is 3D printable, strong, and light weight. I'm planning to make a custom 'bone' for each limb of the beaver. The image below shows my first draft of the lower arm, upper arm, and shoulder.
