After seeing the ZBoard, I decided I needed one. Except I wanted a better one 🙂


So here’s the plan:

The MBS Atom 90 is perfect for the job. It has pre-drilled holes everywhere I could want them. Some in the middle for a battery box. Some on the ends. M8 threaded hole on the axle for motor mounting. It should work great.

I only ordered 2 FSR’s (Force Sensitive Resistors) initially and after some early trial runs (see this Adafruit tutorial for usage), It’ll definitely work better with 4 or more. 1 for the heel and 1 for the ball of the foot.

Still waiting for the motor and batteries to arrive but everything else looks like it’ll work good so far!
