Step by Step Instructions to Build a Homemade Walking Robot

   

Build a Homemade Walking Robot with Parts Lying Around the House.

When I was a kid, I loved sports but I loved science and especially electronics more. I used to tear apart old appliances, television and stereo equipment to find out what made it tick but also to create a stockpile of parts that I could use to make something else. Today after years of massive development and change in the consumer electronics industry there is almost no end to the thing that are available to the home experimenter.

One of the things that I always dreamed of making was a working robot like I saw on shows such as ‘Lost in Space” and others. I eventually moved on to making homemade computers but robots are still way cooler.
