This tiny Hexapod Walker costs only about $70 to build. It is based around the Micro Maestro 6-channel USB Servo Controller by Pololu. It only takes three servos and some paperclip legs to get this thing in motion and with a few distance sensors for eyes it can see obstacles and get around them.

Thanks for the tip Paul.

“This tutorial shows you how to build a very simple autonomous hexapod robot using just three servos. The 2″-high hexapod is capable of walking forward and backward, and can turn left and right. Two forward-looking distance sensors provide obstacle avoidance. The brain of the hexapod is the Pololu Micro Maestro, a 6-servo controller that can read inputs and play motion sequences in a stored script.”
