Is this before they get eaten?
I was having a look at the stellascapes website yesterday and I found this. Has a few close up pics of Lerch. He looks even more impressive close up. I can't see some of the pics in the earlier posts for some reason.
Great stuff. Loved the video, an amazing job. Can't render the latest pics for some reason.
Tuppet would have been the coolest kid in school if he was young enough to take something like that in for show and tell. And that's without even turning the lights on.
Now That's an Actuator
Opened up my nice box of new actuators from China today.
Sizes 400 mm, 500 mm and 600 mm stroke.
24V DC with with 8 Kg load capacity 250 mm/sec speed.
This is the smallest one!
Tested the time to extend or retract --- 1.3 seconds (ooh it's good)
Now that will make my spider jump
That's pretty damn quick. Should be lots of fun.
8kg x 8 legs = 64kg
You could put a saddle on lerch and kids could take him for a ride. Well done
Can't wait to see the creepy crawly.
Re: Lerch the Spider ( Now Henry)
We have made a few small changes to Henry this year so now he can do push ups. You can see a short video of one here
More will follow in a week or two..
That is brilliant Bruce.
Great to see Lerch lurching. That's got to scare some unsuspecting victims.
Oops, should of said it's great to see Henry hopping.
That is very cool.
Jealous of your talent.
Tuppet you never stop amazing me
