TARDIGRADE - NASA inspired motorcycle build by Hookie Co.

TARDIGRADE Build Update 2.0

One step further to reach a ride on the moon!

Dear Logbook, it is Mid-June right now and time for another build update. The time is running fast, but our project Tardigrade is coming together. The list of task’s is still very long and it’s a crazy amount of one-off solutions which nobody did before. For example the elctronical steering, which is based on a complete self developed Ardoino system combined with custom cnc machined parts. Also the wheels are complete self fabricated and developed inhouse at Hookie. Just as a sidenote, they are almost 24“ big and 7“ width.

We activated the CAKE drivetrain and roughly mocked it up. The top speed on the moon is approx. 18km/h, therefore we limited the maximum speed option to 15km/h.

In the next upcoming weeks, we have to finish all the fabrication tasks and put the TARDIGRADE completely together. The 3D body parts needs a paint job and we move on to the final finish. This is where the most exciting moments begins – when the final assembling begins. We are soooooo excited how the result will look like!

No more words by now, enjoy the progress photos and we keep you updated!

OUR TARDIGRADE SHOULD BE AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO AN ORIGINAL CONCEPT OF A NASA MOON ROVER.
