Have you ever wanted to make a fully autonomous robot? If so, your dreams of kickstarting the robot apocalypse can be fulfilled with just a 3D printer, some simple software and a bit of electrical knowhow.
Meet Bleuette, a free hexapod robot that can be created with a 3D printer. The robot is fully autonomous and each of its six legs has two degrees of freedom. Check it out in action below:
Bleuette has been in the works for a few years now, but it wasn’t fully realized until 3D printing became as affordable as it is now. The latest robot is made out PLA plastics, and is rather sturdy.
The best part about this robot is that anybody can make it. All the information you need, including the CAD file for the design, is available on the creator’s github page.
It may not be the most beautiful or functional robot, but the little guy has a lot of charm for just being six legs attached to a central body.[h/t: 3ders]
