As Maker Faire approaches, a few fun display projects are coming together. I’ve been happy to be able to spend time building a novelty little jumping robot. After far to much engineering on a jumping mechanism, the time crunch forced me to settle on a cheap car locking actuator. For $5 bucks, the little guy packs a punch.
Enjoy a short little sped up video (thanks YouTube) of our energetic jumping friend in the works.
