Pinocchio & Gigantor by Daniel Roganti

These are my Bipedal robots. Pinocchio is my first and Giantor is my second.
The construction for the Biped robots are based mostly on materials supplied 
by PLASTRUCT. Although some parts, such as the Torso and feet came elsewhere. 
The Torso is from a plastic toy pail I found in Toys R Us . The feet are 
acrylic soup bowls I found in the grocery store, they're made by arrow Plastic 
in Illinois. The plastic materials allow me to customize my own design, with 
structural integrity , and while keeping the weight reduced. There are 
currently 2 prototypes which demonstrate bipedal locomotion using a gait 
similiar to people. I designed this using static equilibrium to simulate the 
walking gait of a human.
