LEGO Mindstorms NXT Hexapod Robot

My first original robot built using LEGO Mindstorms. It uses only two of the NXT Motors for motion and an ultrasonic sensor to detect objects in its way. I built many prototypes of this robot before I could get it to support its own weight plus that of the heavy computer brick on top. I wrote a simple program for this robot making it walk forward until it sees and obstacle at which point it should turn and carry on exploring, this way it is fully autonomous.
