Adaptive Walking Hexapod from Micromagic Systems

Matt Denton, of Micromagic Systems, posted a few cool videos of his latest hexapod in our forum today.  You may remember news of his iC Hexapod making the rounds last year.  The project he's showing off right now is the B.F. Hexapod (V5).  One of the main features of this robot is its adaptive walking style.  Thanks to its gimbal-mounted, contact sensitive feet and its on-the-fly gait adjustments; it is perfectly suited to uneven terrain.

I'd be a damn fool if I didn't include his demonstration videos, so here they are:

Here’s another video.
Yet another.
Just one more.
