    That's how I feel about my IK code too. It only walks and yaws right now, I can't get the pitch and roll portion of it correct... And experimenting with it lately doing the successive rotations, my code is very much trashed... There are so much cleanup to do after I'm satisfied with its performance...





    Anywho, I am SUPER jealous of your ant bot. The sole reason why I got into HEXapod is because I love insects and bugs, ESPECIALLY Ants!!! I think I'm going to try to kludge a head on my Phoenix once the IK is done...

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Can't wait to see more vids... I love your first vid, how you can move the rotation's origin around. Very awesome!

    I do love ants too (should be very obvious ). Thanks for your words Tom, and good luck with your code and the head for Phoenix.

    Gallery update: A-pod outside in the wilderness

    Hi,
    I just wanted to update you with some pictures I took last summer of A-Pod. I took him outdoor to the wilderness...































    Currently I've started working on the code again for XBee control. I'll post more info when I've done some more progress.

    New video

    Hi,

    I've done alot of work lately on the code part for A-Pod. At the moment A-Pod walks very well and the code for movements are improved too. To be honest I'm very satisfied with the result. The combination of the mechanical improvements, some hardware changes to the DIY, Xan's latest v2.0 and Kurt's XBee/SSC binary code did the magic! I've also decreased the total weight of about 85 gram, all servos and electronics are now powered by the same LiPo.

    Today I've uploaded a new video:



    Enjoy.
