Introduction to "Inside Robosaurus"
The next 16 pages explain in detail all the technical aspects involved in the creation of our giant toy! It all comes from a paper I presented at an International Fluid Power Association Conference held in Chicago, Illinois.
I originally was going to offer the paper for sale here on the Web Site. Once I realized seeing the pictures on paper in black and white is boring, I decided to put it all in color on the Web Site. So now it is FREE! Enjoy!
Note: It is a bit technical and probably will be difficult to understand for those not yet in Junior High.
