thanks i´ve allready put some gum on the feets now it moves more quickly. yes i saw your hexapod dancing on a billiard table on the pololu website, very good :) 

Guess I don't want to meet this guy in my basement in the night. Scary. And even more scary with the soundtrack in the video. Well done.

You could expose some more details about the leg mechanics. Would be interesting to read.

thanks :D i will expose more details about the leg mechanics in the next few days.

I like the jitter routine. Are you just bouncing the center legs to do that?

PS-The horror. No LMR logo in your video. :) You shall be banished from the land for that one. :)

i think the jitter routine is pretty funny^^ yes just the center legs bouncing with a duration of 100ms 

and i also have changed the video now there is a LMR logo in the video ;) 

and thanks for sharing :)
