This is my 3d printed version of the DARwIn-OP. He is not perfect yet but I am making progress.
"What is the Darwin-OP you may ask? DARwIn-OP is an acronym
for (Dynamic Anthropomorphic Robot with Intelligence - Open Platform) or DARwIn for short. The
DARwIn-OP was developed by the
RoMeLa research lab at Virginia Tech in collaboration with University of Pennsylvania,
Purdue University and ROBOTIS. ROBOTIS is a
world leading South Korean robotic’s company. Their Dynamixel servos are the
leading robotic servos in the world and the key to why the DARwIn-OP is so ground breaking. The lead
designers of the DARwIn-OP project
were Dr. Dennis Hong of Virginia Tech’s RoMeLa and ROBOTIS.
It is a state of the art research and development humanoid robot. The DARwIn-OP
weighs in at about 2.9 kilograms and a height of 45.5 cm. The DARwIn-OP has won
the gold medal for humanoid Kid size 3 on 3 soccer robot class at RoboCup for both 2011 and 2012. The robot is
both an open hardware and software project. Being a open project is a great
help to me in getting this project to work because all of the 3D files and
plans are available online for download."
