Wind powered skeletal robot made from cheap plastic tubes and rope. Wings gather wind which is stored in bottles and when enough energy is gathered it can move on its many legs. Reuters 7968/05

    u sure? ofc it’s scary as fuck

  4. Mattros says:

    that pretty cool. how exactly dose it store the wind energy in bottles though?

  5. cozrulez says:

    it looks like the sails pump up a compreeor which then moves the legs in turn
    pretty ingenious

    Beautifull ! specially how legs move.
    But we, with my brother, are going to achieve more.
    We will add balance to movement.
    Perhaps we can se it in autum, next year.
    But still — walking and low use of energy is beautiful !

    This is pretty ingenious. Can any of your inventions carry a load?

  16. SuckyMeSucky says:

    it is out side my house

  17. sabata2 says:

    My question is how do these ‘robots’ know to move away or towards the tide?

    Ingenious design, I’ll admit. Very impressive. But not efficient at all. You can hear all the creaking of the PVC joints, and that loses most of the wind energy right there.
    All this guy needs is frictionless surfaces so that the energy transfer can be as complete as possible.

    @TheAussiNut he came up with the idea from some old di vinci ideas and drawings

  19. PowerUpXX says:

    the entire time i was just thinking “kick it in the shins!!!!!”

  20. PowerUpXX says:

    of course only after i stopped thinking about the genius behind it

  21. TjinDeDjen says:

    he would never win battle robots championship with this….

  22. SuperZalex says:

  23. dirtysanchezproducti says:
