Heh, my gf controlled my hexapod in Germany from Boston a while ago. Close call.
Close one indeed! How was she able to control it?

I hadn't realised your hex was teaching its self to walk, I presumed you were using the balance gesture technique similar to my own? You would love what I'm building here in the UK right now, can't say anything about it.. but if you ever fancy a sabbatical to the UK....
Ha, well the news media make it seem that the hexapod is learning in the video, but it's not. The video is just to show the 3D balance gestures based on a spring model applied along with inverse kinematics. The learning was the first thing I did before I fully explored IK, for the class project. I'm working on some better learning techniques though, some that will actually be video-worthy
You have been working on this secret project for a while now, eh? Do you know when it will be able to be shown off to the world?
