Project Changes and Update:

A project log for (Exosuit?)/VR Controlled Bot

This is going to be a long and hard project - and a really expensive one too. I'm happy to take you along for the ride!

I have some large changes to how this project is going to work:

First off, I am not sure if i am going to be able to add an exoskeleton feature in this version of the project (more on that later). The process for converting the bot into an exosuit without removing anything for changing operations is too complicated and unimportant in this version

That leads me to my second point, This project will be done in different versions, each one better and more advanced than the one before. This way it is easier to update the project until it reaches a certain point.

Okay, now on to the updates!

I am cutting the frame for the limbs and digits these next two weeks, and I am getting the material for the torso and head. Also, I am testing out the camera-VR headset system these next few weeks as well. 

I have decided to use a motion capture system for the robot, instead of trying to create a motion tracking system from scratch. Lets see where this goes!
