Hi! The link in this article about the project is inaccessible. Do you have another link I can look on? Thanks.
Hi.

Thank you for pointing that out. We took out the bad link and replaced it with links to video of the robot on YouTube and code for the robot on GitHub.

You might try to reach out to the maker of the robot on their YouTube channel if you have any questions.
