Robotics Monday: Thing

Name of Model: Thing
Created by: GhostInside: unofficial website NXTLOG profile

Here's a highlight from July's NXTLOG quadruped challenge - a robot with 4 legs on one side, like the "Thing" character on the TV show, "The Addams Family". I'm not really sure how well this thing turns (the video only shows forward motion) but it's definitely a unique twist on the quadruped format. The way the the legs (fingers) are rigged to move is great too (although I'm guessing that most of my robotics-oriented readers are better at making that sort of thing than I am)
