Zenta has just posted a video of his MorphHex MK-II in action! This robot is an improved version of the original MorpHex robot. This robot still can transform from 6 legged cralwer to a rolling robotic bawll. The latest version of the MorphHex has 2DOF on the upper half of the sphere, giving it much more freedom and the ability to make a variety of different shapes and patterns. We can’t help but think that the MorpHex looks like a robo-flower during some parts of the video.
The video also shows off the new and improved symmetric rolling engine and a special test at the very end. And don’t forget to check out Zenta’s MorpHex Forum Thread on the Trossen Robotics Community.
