I made this goofing around.. it's basically four servo's taped together. I eventually got it to walk but not well. It led to other things..

It's a cute "whatever it is"! 

You should post a video so we can see it walking!

Took me a bit to get the videos under 10 megs.. also appears like can only attach one..

This one is the feeble walk. My real interest here was researching servos as it was the first time I had played with them. I also didn't know it when I bought them but these are only 90° servos so I only get 45° from center

An easier way would be to just upload it to YouTube (you could make it unlisted if you want). Then just paste the YouTube share URL into your post and it will appear. And you can have as many as you want.

Your creation appears to be alive!

I might do that with YouTube.. I actually have quite a few videos of different projects.. mostly raspberry Pi and python stuff..

For such simple legs you need the feet to slip in the forward direction and not in the reverse direction.  Maybe sculpture the legs or use wheels that only turn one way.

Absolutely. This was actually just a proof of concept kind of thing and I took it and ran with it to some other places as well. For sure the physics of this are not very nice LOL
