is it possible to control more than 8 servos with a picaxe 28x1?

RC car that climbs walls

Just a toy i saw the other day... i think it is a nice idea for a feature to include in a robot... :)

ldr test

I made a simple test project just to see how an ldr works... i used a servo to indicate the light level read from the ldr...

Is it possible to walk with only one servo?

Hi,

 

i will make my start here robot, but while i wait for the weels/ ir sensor and motors, i only have a servo, the picaxe board and chip, and a few pieces of wire and metal.

 

do you think it is possible to make a servo walk/crawl with just this?

 

:) 

 

In the first video i made it walk, but it only works on top of paper... it has some "claw" shaped ends in the metal legs so it kind of works... :p
