Now that we have our first working prototype of an articulated “leg”, we can focus ourselves on optimizing several aspects. Our prototype is only 80 cm high, to extend this to the planned 2 meters we need to optimize the supporting structure to minimize oscillations during movement.

Regarding the servo motors in the prototype they seem to have the right torque to even support the 2 meter extension, nevertheless we would like to investigate other servos specially quieter ones with equal torque.

In our prototype we havenĀ“t sequenced the EL-wire yet, for now the EL-wire is connected directly to its inverter, although we are satisfied, we still would like to try brighter versions and make a similar prototype with LEDs to compare response curves.
