Lotus is a four legged Walker using two modified standard Hobbico servos.

Features of the bot include:
*Speed of 1 foot per 2 seconds! (on a fresh charge)
*Tactile Sensors/ Reverses for 10 secs
*Flashing LEDs
*Chirps When In Reverse (really cool!)
*Never ever tips over!

Lotus is based on the "complete walker circuit" found at: http://www.beam-online.com/Robots/Circuits/circuits.html Athough I made a few changes!

Parts used were: Standard Aluminum Angle bar, electronic components found at radio shack, 1/8" welding rod for legs, 4.8V NiCd recharchable

Lotus is a "B.E.A.M." Walker using the philosophy of robotics presented by Mark Tilden. You can learn all about BEAM at http://www.geocities.com/SouthBeach/6897/beam2.html and the other links found there.
