Hairy (also referred to as Hairy the Walker) was a six-legged walker that attempted to qualify for Series 2 of Robot Wars, where it would have been a joint pioneer of the walking system with Jim Struts.
Design[edit | edit source]
At the time of the Series 2 rehearsals, Hairy was black skeletal robot, with largely exposed wires. Its internals contained six McKibben muscles which would make the legs of the robot rather flexible. Each leg was decorated with grey "knee joints" seemingly being based on a spider's legs. It is unknown if the robot was complete at the time.
Qualification[edit | edit source]
Although not much is known about its Series 2 rehearsal, the known images suggest that the robot was not complete by the time of qualification, with not all the legs being fitted on in time and a lack of armour. Ultimately, Hairy would not compete in Series 2.
