Bob Schneeveis brought his solar-powered walking chariot to the 2010 Bay Area Maker Faire. It was a repeat appearance for the chariot. Last year, the walking robot that pulls the chariot was dressed as Barack Obama. George Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger have also pulled the load.
The solar-powered walking chariot is just one of many Schneeveis inventions seen at the 2010 Maker Faire. The inventor is also the subject of a 2008 documentary film, ‘Bob’s Knee,’ that explores his work to develop a mechanical knee, a quest that no doubt found its way to the walking chariot.
