Symapod has its legs oriented in a star configuration. This star configuration allows it to instantaneously travel in any direction without turning or reorientating itself. As you can see in the picture there is no front to a symapod! The RC servos in this robot have been modified and have had thier control circuit (held inside the servo intself) removed and replaced with a digital servo controller I designed. This new digital controller allows me to read/write to the servo as registers, including force, speed and position using the standard I2C (IIC) bus implimentation. Email: robots@colinmackenzie.net
