[Project] Control a Dog-Like Creature with Linkbot
Each Linkbot is a building block. Multiple Linkbots and accessories can be easily snapped together, without special tools, to form various Linkbot systems for different tasks and projects. In this project, 2 Linkbot-I, 1 Linkbot-L, Cube Connectors, and other accessories are used to form a dog-like creature. The project demonstrates that Linkbot can be used as a building block in a complex Linkbot system.
