After playing with this energetic little walker, we can’t decide whether it’s cute or terrifying. Dagu’s done it again with a robotics kit that’s easy to assemble and fun to hack. The 12-servo Hexapod Chassis Kit provides you with everything you need to give your robot 6 legs of terrifying cuteness. Simply supply a servo controller and some power and you’re ready to go.
The 12-Servo chassis has two joints per leg: a hip and a knee. Several types of gait can be achieved by lifting the knee and sweeping the hip to take a step. The legs are distributed equidistantly around the circular base. Each leg has a foam-rubber “foot” that helps provide traction when it’s walking on smooth surfaces.
If you’ve ever contemplated world-domination, may we suggest an army of these? If you’re not sure what controller to use, Dagu also makes a custom controller (the “Spider” controller) for this kit which you can find in the related products below.
