Casual Users: You Can 3D Print This Robot

Finally, a Robot That Anyone Can Build (+Video)

Fox News via BGR | November 13, 2015

A team of researchers has come up with a system that allows anyone to make a walking robot using only a 3-D printer and an off-the-shelf motor.
The robot, which has four legs and is about the size of an adult hand, doesn’t do much more than walk across a tabletop. Users, though, can specify the shape, size, number of legs and the walking style of the robotic creature – designing it to stand upright, for example, or slink around like a lizard.
