Here's a robot video that I found interesting:
iitsii is a hexapod robot that uses a total of 18 motors. It was designed to be a fun, affordable and easy to use platform for students to learn about robotics. It is powered by the Bigfoot™ Inverse Kinematics Engine which handles all the math calculations necessary for controlling multi-legged walking robots.
All computations are safely hidden from the user in the form of a black box. This means that the user only has to send short and simple commands to the robot (for example, instructing it to walk forward at a desired speed) and the Bigfoot™ engine will automatically take care of all the details, including inverse kinematics, leg trajectory planning, leg gait coordination, motor control, etc. This makes it quite easy even for absolute beginners to play with advanced robotics.
