MechRC Humanoid Robot

Trossen Robotics offers the new MechRC Humanoid Robot


This new ready-to-walk robot is a breakthrough in price to performance. High torque metal gear servos, LiPo batteries for longer run times, a fluid 3D visual software programming interface for easy custom motions, and a remote control unit are included. Everything needed to have your very own walking robot is included in this ready-to-walk kit! With over a hundred pre-installed motions and sounds you can get this robot throwing some dance floor shapes or some killer fighting moves straight from the box.

Programming the MechRC is seriously easy and thanks to the software included, all programming takes place in an animation filmstrip. Manipulate the animated robot on your PC’s screen into your chosen stance and save the move or sequence. Your robot is controlled much like a video game character so programming the ‘bot is both straightforward and fun.

Add the soundtracks, sound effects and voices of your choice from your PC’s music files and blast them out through the speaker in MechRC’s chest.
