Looking for a way to build yourself a functional AT-ST walker? Have I got the perfect robot for you.
The AREXX YT-3000 (aka “YETi Walker”) is a bi-pedal robot which can be programmed using your PC or an remote-controlled via an IR interface. It’s powered by an ATMEGA8 microcontrolller, which can be easily programmed in C to do your bidding.
In its basic configuration, the YETi is a simple walking machine, but can be expanded with additional sensors and modules such as an ultrasonic obstacle detector and an external LED display.
The basic YETi Walker kit is available from TheRobotShop for £69.99 (appx. $114 USD).
