Robotic Ants

Have I told you about my friend Tom?

He writes a really wonderful blog and also shares my passion for Robots. Unlike me, Tom has a very creative and practical mind and can actually create wonderful Robots and other artistic creations.

Now Tom lives in Germany and instead of Postcards - he sends me random Robotic bits and pieces.

The latest message from Tom was in the form of a Robotic Ant.... check the YouTube video. It's great.

A-Pod is an ant inspired hexapod robot with a 2 DOF abdomen (tail), a 3 DOF head with large mandibles. 6 legs with 3 DOF each. Total 25 servos. This video demonstrates body movement and mandible control....

The track is also way cool: Sound track: Artist: Trifonic with Lies (Instrumental).
