The T8 is powered by an embedded microcontroller running a movement engine called Bigfoot Inverse Kinematics. This engine ensures that the user doesn't have to worry about sending complicated instructions to the robot. Using the wireless controller, you can simply select a gait and tell the T8 which direction you want it to go. The robot handles all the calculations on-board. The T8 kit is up for pre-order now, with an expected ship date of August 31st. It's going to cost you a whopping $1,350, but it jumps to $1,500 after August 1st. That's very steep, but there's a much less spendy, and still pretty neat/creepy option from Robugtix.
