Robot Leg

This is the first step in making my own bipedal robot.  If I’m satisfied with this leg, I will build another and some hips.  I want this leg to operate using Inverse Kinematics .  I currently have no idea how to do this, so if anyone wants to give me some advice please email me! ohbowz@gmail.com

I am using a combination of the Lynxmotion servo erector set, and MicroRax to build the frame.  I chose to mix these two because I like the aesthetic achieved with MicroRax and the function that the Lynxmotion parts provided.

Dynamixel AX-12 servos are moving the thing, special parts were made to get these to fit the MicroRax.

The brain is an Arbotix Robot Controller, which is like an Arduino, with more beef.
