Description

Yo,
This is my attempt to build a low cost 4 servo Arduino Uno controlled bipedal robot that is framed with inexpensive 3D printed I brace; that can hold a standard servo and interconnect with additional braces to form various modular structures. 
My goal in this project was to:
A. Show my 3yr old daughter that you can make anything you put your mind to!B. Not break the bank (wife mandated)C. Only run on 4 servos (to start with)D. Stand >= 10” tallE. Leave room for upgrades/reworks without scrapping partsF. Give live commands to the bipedG. Communicate wirelessly (I have lots of extra Android phones laying around)

Materials and methods
