Walking robots, previously seen on the Technogames CD, were brought to life by Kieron McGeever for the design and technology show (NEC). Many colleagues there asked for a convenient resource to enable whole classes to get involved in robot building. Our solution is a pack of parts for the basic two leg (bipedal) walker. It should be emphasised that ‘kit of parts’ here means all the basic components – including pre-cut plates – needed to get a robot walking, but not all the final answers. Creative involvement ranges from investigation of mechanical variables to a major re-think of geometry.
