That's kinda badass. Wonder how hard building one would be...... SUSHI! WHERE ARE YOU!
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

I'm not sure. It looks fucking awesome though. We need some.

That's actually way cooler than I thought it'd be. Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots for keeps.

I saw a gif of this earlier this week!
I wanted to learn how to make a biped robot from scratch a few years ago. I even have the plans somewhere. You'd need a good few servos (one for each joint), a microcontroller, good set of batteries, probably a bluetooth or wifi adapter, and you'd want a bunch of sensors so it can interact with the outside world. I could see it getting expensive, especially if you want to make it look good.
I think the really hard part would be programming it. Getting the servos to work together to create walking would probably be difficult. Even those robots do a crab walk instead of a normal one. Balance is hard.
I still want to do this someday lol. I forget a lot of the hardware I've learned in school though... I've become a soft, squishy Java developer.

I feel like it depends on how articulate you want to make it. I remember the old robots that basically waddled back and forth, that would be easy.
I can put the hardware together if you can do the coding. >.>

Bipedal walking is difficult af. People don't realize that.
