robot walks after 100 hours of human work

Alright, so this so-called "Giger"
do-it-yourself robot may not truly be Giger-esque, but it did cost
upwards of $10,000 and take more than 100 hours to build, which is
enough for us to forgive a little mis-naming. The biggest expense (and
time sink), it seems, came as a result of the builder’s decision to use
professional-grade servos instead of the usual DIY fare, which are both
finicky and pricey (between $200 and $300 apiece). After a bit of
fine-tuning, however, our pal "Tyberius" was
able to get the bot to show off a few moves for the camera, and even
walk across the desk without toppling over (he’s apparently looking to
give it a more natural gait next). Head on past the break to see for
yourself.
