Bioloid Premium TYPE C Codes

For the Hong Kong MakerFaire I developed a general program for the Bioloid Premim TYPE C. The code consists of both the Motion File and Task Code.

This aim of this program is for the Bioloid to interact with the guest at the MakerFaire. I haven't compiled the videos I took from the MakeFaire yet as the file sizes are bigger than my MacBook disc space. However many kids love the Bioloid and so did many grown up. Kids all kept waving and touching the Bioloid to make him do something, throwing ball at him to catch it.

Ready To Upgrade Knight Templar 2

After the Hong Kong Mini Makerfaire, I have some new ideas for the Knight Templar 2.

The Knight Templar 2 needs improvement in these areas :

1. Upgrade arm servos to RX24 from AX-12
2. Add RX24 servos for the ankles. (Eventhough it can walk without these ankle servos, they allow it to do Kung Fu kicks etc).
3. Use 3D printers to make custom body parts.

What I find about Knight Templar 2 is that eventhough it is much more powerful. I tend to use Knight Templar I more because it can do more humanly things while Knight Templar 2 can only fight.

With the upgrade Knight Templar 2 should be able to do much more, much faster.
