Old news

The pitch went very well. He liked our ideas on the pelvis and especially the agile eye hip joint.

What we got from Össur in this visit.
*Power knee to temper with a load cell.
*3 power knee motors and bearings.
*Texas Instrument micro controller

So the work this week is to connect these materials and get the motors running. Connect them to the micro controller
So the programmers have something to do right in the start.
We will get loads of more stuff when the Non-disclosure agreement with Baldur is signed. Photos on facebook or wiki later today.

The thought is because we got all the lower part of the robot. We will start building a simple hip and pelvis because
we will learn more on making a prototype then anything else, and there is a chance that 2 persons will be signed to create an
agile eye because he really liked that concept.

We talked about the ball joint and we can get a ball joint that is used in hip replacement surgery but we don´t know how much time
it takes to get one so we will probably start with using one from an old car.

Their specialist said it is important to have a chance of changing the load.

Lets start small with big ideas! ;D
