A-Pod part 1

A-Pod is an ant inspired hexapod robot with a 2 DOF abdomen (tail), a 3 DOF head with large mandibles. 6 legs with 3 DOF each. Total 25 servos. This video demonstrates body movement and mandible control. I still have to do some mechanical improvements to the legs (therefore little walking). The robot are remotely controlled with a custom 2,4 GHz RC transmitter.

Sound track: Artist: Trifonic with Lies (Instrumental).

Duration : 0:4:50

    Have watched this video many time. Really creepy how real the movement is. I dont know a lot on the subject but I’m sure making this and coding the logic is big work and you must be talented at both.

    Any change your going to release the code? Just curious being a programmer myself. I guess you wont release it coz you maybe trying to make money with these some day ๐Ÿ™‚
