This is my final project for my Making Things interactive class at Carnegie Mellon University. The project is a six legged robot. This design was largely based off of Micromagic System's Design (http://www.hexapodrobot.com) with a few modifications (mostly for the worst, seeing how this is my first attempt at something like this).
It was a fun project, the parts are all laser cut from acrylic plastic, the microcontroller I used is an Arduino Diecimila. The hexabot works by using 12 servo gears (2 per leg) to move about and it is controlled via a Wii Nunchuck.
