You may remember this very awesome Hexapod from a previous post, controlled via a custom iPhone app. Well iHexi has returned with a few upgrades; namely Android phone support which eliminates using a PC as a ‘go between’. Looks to me as though it’s moving a bit smoother too, definitely an impressive piece of work and the video has a pretty awesome soundtrack as well! Check it out!
On an unrelated note; our good friend Rob Farrell of Farrell Robotics posted this video of two DX-117 based humanoids duking it out at last years Korean Robot Festival; these are some of the more impressive lightweight humanoids I’ve seen!
