Dan Royer of Vancouver, BC, built this 2-foot hexapod robot out of lasercut parts, a displayduino and eighteen servos.

I built an open source, arduino-based, bluetooth hexapod robot. I currently drive it from my PC simulator (also open source). I’m trying to figure out how to drive it with Android phones, iPhones, PS3 remotes, and Wii remotes. I’m also writing assembly instructions because I would like to sell this robot as a kit to students, hobbyists, and anyone who thinks robots = awesome.

Download the source code and DXFs from Sourceforge or contact Dan for a kit.
