Pivot is a robot with a new approach to the hexapod design. Studying Lynxmotion's Extreme Hexapod shows the legs are sliding when the robot is walking, which is caused by varying distance between the legs. Pivot shows a new design concept that does not have this shortcoming. The design of the robot is simple:

  • 3 servo's
  • Acroname Brainstem controller
  • SRF04 range finder
This promises to be an excellent robot design for beginners. The robot takes approximately one month to build, and costs around $200.
