Ive been workin on bottin dimestoppin and slow motion a lot lately, but i can not come up with anything that looks good in the way of a robot walk. nothing over the top or complicated, but everything i try looks forced and horrible. Im doing decent with the slow-mo walk, ive been trying the one where my back heel comes up before my front heel goes down (takes a lot more control and leg muscle than i originally anticipated haha). But any kind of robotic walk wher im dime stoppin or strobin... anything i try looks bad to me... any advice tips concepts or ideas? thanks!

have you tried watching actual robots walk like on youtube or anything?? watchin robot mechanics can really give you some good insight on a move or an idea that could inspire a move. isolation might clean it up a bit too

Yo bro I'm poppin Junior, if you want you can watch some of my videos on youtube.
I also do a lot of robotic movements in my dance.
So Junior Boogaloo told me last year that you can walk like you want to walk when you do robot.
The only thing is that it gots to look controled.
You can walk normal like a human but with robotic arms you know.
Peace poppin Junior

Read Otis Funkmeyer's post about botting.

Also, flex your core muscles, it helps keep things tighter.

Also, have you tried the sliding your feet forward robot walk? It's the really old school way to do it, but its easy to pop after each slide (of the foot).
