Blue Panther - Concept

Date: April 2020

The Blue Panther is a quadruped robot concept that I came up with as a quick iteration from my Pink Panther robot.

Just as I was starting to build my first robot, I realized that it was quite big - roughly the size of a cat. All my life I have been fascinated with the intricacy and perfection that is intrinsic to smaller things, such as insects, and so I asked myself - why not make the robot smaller?

Thus, I made a few sketches which turned into a quick CAD of how I would design a new, smaller quadruped while adding some new features to improve it from its predecessor. I also took this endeavour as a chance to learn Fusion 360 CAD, which I picked up and got comfortable with in a matter of hours.
