Simple Fighter

Simple Fighter appeared on several robot news pages from Japan but I have not been able to find a home page for it, nor been able to discover the builder.
The modification of putting arms on the feet is very innovative and allows Simple Fighter to get up from lying on its front or back.
The servos used appear to be GWS Micro 2 BB MG with 5.4Kgcm torque and the battery is a Lipo 3.7V
The first photo is an early version with the standard horn on the tilt servo.
Was the bear head to go on the robot?
The second photo shows SimpleFighter With an extended tilt-servo-horn.


No information on this one. What can the levers on the foot do, they can't be for getting up, are they just for attacking?

Uses standard servos modified with external 5:1 gears for more torque - Why? It certainly isn't necessary.
Uses a Delphi program to control a serial servo controller.

David, here is a picture of the "talking tree" that I built for our children's Sunday School at my church. I used an auto-talk board, and a dynamic mic board to get the tree to talk. The lips move in sync pretty closely. Thanks for your help, I never would have made it work if I had not seen "Alex" the talking head. The eyes move also!!
It is amazing how it gets the children's attention. They sit and listen to every word!! and never get bored!!
