Work continues on the Flint ape-bot. I've added some arms and legs to enable it to interact with its environment in more interesting ways. Each arm has six axes and the legs are only four. Whether the robot will ever be able to walk (supporting its own weight) is an open question at the moment, but walking isn't my main aim.

I've added force sensitive resistors to the hands, body and legs which should give some tactile feedback, allowing Flint to nudge objects and observe the effects. The hands aren't strong enough or sufficiently mobile to actually pick things up though.
