About this project

I am developing a basic humanoid robotic platform. Construction is
simple and the electronics are Arduino compatible.

I would like to build and distribute at least 50 kits.

I have the equipment, but little funding for materials.

The proposed project includes:
-Refine the design for build-ability
-Create and distribute kits
-Publish all designs licensed as: Attribution Share Alike
-Solicit feedback from contributors
-Establish a network of user/developers

Design goals are:

Simple to build and easy to share.
Arduino based microelectronics
Simple mechanics
Easly modified
