I just wanted to give an update on my experimenting with different body and legdesigns.
It has become a hybrid i think, micromagic and lynxmotion parts and as Zenta said, it is a functional robot. It's a copy of the Apod of Zenta with a little twist. Matt, this is why I wanted to get the hexengine running so bad. I thought, well it has exactly this functionality, including pan, twist, tilt, gripper etc. But anyway, this is where my project is right now. Tailsection should be coming in end this week, just a whole lot of wiring left. The footcontactsensors have to be connected and i still have to find a good placement for the accelerometer.
Well mostly movies speak a thousand words so some first movies:
As you can see I used some of the hexapod parts i bit creative (femurs in the gripper). Matt, is it possible to order parts of the hexapod kit, i had to cut and drill some. I mean femur and 'shoulder'-parts.
