Inspired by his childhood dream of making a large walking tank model, Michael Sng, a TED speaker and former STIKFAS toy designer. This project is called Codename Colossus, Mk.I Cyclops is the first of the series, made of more than 400 3D printed parts, this model is actually exist to spark your imagination, it’s not just a prototype or a 3D print or a render, it is actual result from the production.
This project aims to create a whole new category product, most radio controlled vehicles on the market don’t have fine details or look realistic. Michael wanted to create something big, something that moves on its own and looks awesome, and more importantly, fire up your imagination. In order to create dimension accuracy, the scale models are constructed from more than 60 polyurethane resin casts instead of common polyester resin with 3 robotics-grade servos to move the legs while a microprocessor would send commands to all electronic parts using an analogue old school wired controller. Each of this robotic kit can be assembled just using screws, all electronic parts can be plugged in place.
