New Lightening Fast Hexapod Robot Kit In The Works (Video)

We've always been interested and intrigued by the potential of hexapod robots, but didn't feel the “Oh Wow! I've really got to have one of these”… until now.

Andrew Alter at Trossen Robotics is working on a new hexapod design, the PhantomX, that uses Robotis AX-18F Dynamixel servos and the Vanadium Labs ArbotiX Robocontroller. This little puppy is lightning fast, and surprisingly sleek. With this level of speed, manuverability, and flexibility, we can easily imagine a new RoboGames XXtreme Obstacle Course competition.

The new kit release schedule isn't available yet, but according to Andrew it will be “… in the very near future.” We can hardly wait.
