    MKII test video! 

    Now that I have proofed that the idea can work out, I can start designing MKIII. 

    PCB Robot MKIII will be made from just a pcb, magnets and a battery. This cheap robot will be ideal for swarm robotics.

    My new light-weight design: 

    3 freakin' grams! (Yes I'm going to have a problem with the battery for MKIII but I have a plan)

    This was my first attempt in trying to use flexible PCBs as robot legs!

    As shown in the video this prototype manged to make some small steps but I was expecting a better behavior. These are all the things that needs to be improved for MKII:

    • Align the PCB so that all legs deliver the same amount of force - strongest point is the middle of the coil, if misaligned different forces with different angles are produced
    • Reduce the gap between the PCBs and magnet
    • Reduce weight
