In the last post, our cardboard robot could move but clumsily. We realized that there were two problems. The first one was about our configuration. Our servos couldn’t bear the inertia of tibias, coxas, and femurs (u should notice when working with Hexapod). Second, we optimized our mechanic design. We now can use fully cardboard for both axial bearing and radial bearing.
What do you think, guys? Can we make it more funny?
We tend to open-source this code and design so please follow us on discord and website, and you wont miss our future milestones.

I am a fan of the moon shot, big idea, boundary pushing dream but I also like at least some boots on the ground boring old fact checking. Has any reputable 3rd party gotten "hands on" unfiltered test at these cars? I would accept even Wired or NYT but Adam Savage would be a best case, I would even take the word of Jay Leno or James May as a good start.
We’re trying to make a hexapod robot but full of cardboard inspired by the famous hexapod template. In the previous post, our team wanted to try different materials and got the idea of replacing plastics and metal used in fire and black ant robots. Currently, we have just re-implemented the inverse kinematics algorithm since the repos on github are not compatible with our cardboard design with 12 DOFs. We are using 12 9g servos for 4 legs and controlling robot via Bluetooth by using esp32.
This mechanic design of robot is still not optimal (the paper is broken after several times of controlling), but here are the current results.
Btw, it is a hobby of my team but it’s really interesting to use only cardboard to build a movable robot. We are working overnight so see you just around the corner.
