Building a stop motion robot

by Oliver -

robot.jpgHere is an interesting project: The anonymous Leonardo Da Vinci at omnivore.ca is building a stop motion animation robot. "What it all adds up to, I hope, is a stop-motion system that can operate independently, with all the logic and power contained under the skin of the figure. Plans exist to allow the figure to move to a position, and send a wireless signal to the base station Mac that will in turn, trigger software to grab a frame in a digital still camera." He's got a screentest of the robot moving and a short stop motion animation as well as various sketches and texts describing the project.
