Description

You don’t need to understand BEAM robotics, or know anything about Mark Tilden, in order to enjoy your Robosapien. However, not only is a basic understanding of the background of the robot (and the theories that make it “tick”) interesting, but these concepts open up opp- tunities to further explore your Robosapien. This gives you more to think about and a richer background when you’re coming up with programming routines and even potential hacks for your Robosapien. As we’ll see in subsequent chapters, Robosapien is a far cry from a true BEAM robot. But as we’ll also see, Robosapien would never have been developed if it weren’t for Mark Tilden’s groundbreaking work in the area of BEAM robotics. CHAPTER 3 ? ? ? Robosapien:A Design History Figure 3-1. This is an early computer render of the finalized Robosapien design. In February 2005, Mark Tilden and I met in New York City to talk about, what else—robotics and Robosapien. He was in town for the upcoming International Toy Fair, and we met in the heart of midtown Manhattan at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse.
