Meet Bert, a bipedal walking monster robot.

I made Bert out of laser-cut parts, along with an Arduino 101, four servos, an infrared sensor, an LED, and lots and lots of batteries.

The start of building Bert.

So. Many. Parts.

The feet and legs are finally done! As you can see, it's made with four servos.

And we're walking! Bert is taking his very first steps, I feel like a proud mama!

Bert rocking his wig.

He can finally see! Hurray!

Bert got a protective jacket and his feet were pimped. I removed his wig, as it made him lose balance and fall over...
