This is Hexy the Hexapod 1.1 version with board, power, and software upgrades from the original version.
ArcBotics’ Hexy the Hexapod is a fully articulated hexapod robot kit that gives you a platform to explore advanced robotics, kinematics, and programming. Hexy has six legs, 19 servo motors and is powered by Arduino, while maintaining a price 4-10x less expensive than current hexapod robots. Great for students 15+ and up exploring advanced robotics and kinematics and DIY enthusiasts looking for an open-source platform.
Hexy makes complex robotics less costly, easier to learn with the tutorials and documentation, while being radically more fun (and cute!). At the same time its built with completely open source hardware and software, making discovery and extension as easy as building it in the first place.
Use it to learn advanced robotics concepts like inverse kinematics, or use pre-built code to have it march to your bidding. Build it using the high-quality picture filled tutorials, and it is ready to walk, play and dance with pre-built demos. Adding moves is as easy as opening and editing a text file, and moves are easily share-able as simple text files.
Hexy has been featured on Engadget, Wired, New York Times, MAKE, and more. It launched on Kickstarter in 2012 raising $168,000 and since has been sold in over 50 countries.
