Hexapod Walker

Another really cool video has surfaced on YouTube.com. GusJanss has produced an awesome hexapod walker. This robot can turn, change its pace, and use a light sensor and an ultrasonic sensor to navigate. He achieves some really cool movements out of just three motors. Nice work!

I have also put up some photos on Flickr if you are interested. And no, I have not made instructions yet for the model, hopefully the photos will help if you want to try building it.
