Robots that feel the world™


***ALL INFORMATION on this page IS ESTIMATED, Shown here***

Megataur is a large legged robotic development platform. Its high-torque brushless outrunner motors and specialized leg design let this machine run and jump over difficult terrain. High-speed and high-resolution encoders let the machine see the ground through the motors and adapt faster than the blink of an eye.

Minitaur Robot


  • Easy to use: the robot can be driven around by joystick out of the box using different gaits
  • Versatile legged machine: the 2DOF legs are good for more than just running, they can sense and exert precise forces and do basic manipulation
  • Sensor integration platform: Industry-standard Picatinny rails and onboard SPI, I2C and UART ensures additional sensors can enable autonomy
