08m2 Board is Available and I think I built a Hexapod
I had to build a robot just to test a board...
I wanted a nice, simple 08m board to play with so I made one! It is not too shabby, if I do say so myself and quite handy for hexapods and the like. You can find this board here on the component page and here at Rocket Brand Studios.
I got the boards in, soldered on up and quickly discovered that I didn't have anything to control with this board. I set off to make a hexapod, my first one. I did some google imaging and found about a dozen examples of other's hexapods. I then sorta "averaged out" the designs and starting drawing mine up. A long night later, I hit "GO" on the laser cutter. It came out pretty well, and walks just like it should. In fact, I am happy enough with the first design that I plan to go ahead and finalize the design, and put the results in the form of a kit.
For now, enclosed are a few pictures and a late-night video of his first steps...
