I am working on a simulator for walking robots. It is specifically intended to aid in the the high-level design of the mechanics and movements (gaits).

At this point, it is possible to create a walking machine from beams and hinges, then animate the machine with simple motions, and steer the machine around under joystick control. It's harder than it sounds, but if it were easy I wouldn't have bothered with the simulator, right? :-)

It's free software, but it's not yet open source. So far it has been tested on Windows 2k (with much success) and Windows 98 (with limited success).
