Chaotic Moon: Base Projects – “Lucy”

Chaotic Moon Base

For this BASE project, we attempted to answer a question: Could an autonomous mechanical being, if given the chance, take care of an organic being?

This is the first step of the experiment—and the first of many iterations—in which Chaotic Moon masterminds explore the complexities—and difficulties—of building a robotic arm, facing obstacles including torque and resistance.

“To put it simply,” Chaotic Moon hardware creative technologist, Eric Schneider, explains, “imagine attempting to lift a 10-lb. barbell with an arm that, while it may have a joint, completely lacks muscle.”
