    Re: MorpHex, a sphere formed morphing hexapod

    Thanks guys!

    To day I got some time in my workshop to finish the hardware part on Morphex. It was a really simple task using standard Lynxmotion parts, a L-Bracket and a SES Electronic Carrier. The servo power switch is mounted on the L-bracket. This way its easy to power off the servos while MorpHex is transformed into a ball, like I did to the first version.

    Some pictures:

    I'm not done with the code for the upper section yet, so I'm just using some tape to hold the un-powered sections together. The lower section is powered and controlled though.

    I'll keep you posted with some better pictures later.

    Very cool! In fact, very, very cool! (Although the movie could do with some editing -- it reminds me too much of my household right now ;-)

    Is that Swedish being spoken in the background?

    MorpHex MKII new pictures

    Hi,

    I've just updated my blog with some pictures and information about my last progress on MorpHex MKII.
    I'm still working on the code, but have done good progress lately. Atleast I've got it rolling again, lol.
    The new upper section with 2 DOF make a big difference when it comes to freedom though.

    Here are some pics:
