BirdBot: Energy Efficient Robot Leg

😎 New DIY robot kits

Researchers look to nature all the time to improve their designs. BirdBot happens to be an energy efficient robot leg by a team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of California, Irvine. It is designed to need fewer motors than other leg robots. As the researchers explain:

BirdBot benefits from a foot-leg coupling through a network of muscles and tendons that extends across multiple joints.
