Building a quadruped robot using a Raspberry Pi 4 (and approx $900!)

A group of students at the Stanford University Student Robotics group have developed a lightweight, open source quadruped robot design. They’ve called it the Pupper and it runs from a Raspberry Pi 4. The cost for the Pupper is between $600 and $900, depending on the quantities involved. The best part of it is that they have extensively documented the build process over on their website. From there, you can find a bill of materials, build instructions, CAD models and PCB designs and they have released all the code necessary on GitHub. A quick video of the Pupper is below:

If walking robots is your thing, you might also be interested in one of this year’s Pi Wars entrants: Spot Puppy, designed and built by Josh and Jeremy Pattman which you can see below. I know which I think is cuter :p
