Time to Build a Bioloid!

I started building the Bioloid right after unpacking the box.

A good use for a yoyo squid:

First part:

I found it quicker to find the right servo if they are all lined up by ID#:

After about 9 hours of building time my Bioloid was built in humanoid form!

(Note that the CM-5 is not on yet, so the IMU can be added easily later)

HUV Robotics Bioloid Sensors

I mentioned back in June that Jon Hylands from HUV, was working on BrainBot (for more information look back at that post). Since that post, BrainBot has come very far! Also Jon Hylands has opened a new website, HUV Robotics, which has sensors for the Bioloid kit including a 6 axis IMU and pressure sensors for the feet of a Bioloid!

I ordered a IMU for my Bioloid which will help with balance, and should aid in other cool movements (it should come soon)!

All of the sensors can be used with the CM-5, or any other controller board suitable like a GumStix coupled with a USB to BUS board.
