AcYut 1

With new aims came new challenges, and the biggest was procuring funds. However by the dedicated efforts of the team, BITS-Pilani and the alumni, the team was able to get the required sponsorship. With the backing of the University as well as the entire alumni network, the team started ordering the components necessary for the construction and design of AcYut from the United States through various companies.

For each member of the team, it is still very difficult to forget what followed : long days and nights spent studying various algorithms, selecting the best pieces of codes and correcting mistakes, motors burning out unexpectedly and, above all, joy at the proper functioning of a particular part. Every member of the team was putting in all of their time and effort just to realize one single dream : AcYut - The Imperishable.

Finally, on the afternoon of 14th March 2008, BITS Pilani gave birth to India's first indigenously built humanoid : AcYut 1.0. The team had managed to design and construct a humanoid which could walk, fight and even dance to Bollywood numbers!
