What has 6 legs, 19 servos, an Arduino for brains, and an ultrasonic sensor for eyes? It’s Hexy the Hexapod from Arcbotics, and it’s available in the Maker Shed just in time for the Holidays. Hexy is a completely open source, fully articulated 6 legged robot that’s designed for low cost and maximum robotic enjoyment. With full documentation and online tutorials, Hexy makes learning advanced robotic concepts like inverse kinematics straightforward and fun. The Arduino based controller is easily re-programmed and your Hexy will be ready to walk, play, or dance as soon as you upload the demo programs. The Hexy kit will arrive ready to assemble and even includes a screwdriver so you won’t even have to dig through your toolbox on Christmas morning.
