After four years intensive R&D, inspiration, design and build, Micromagic Systems is proud to unveil Mantis — the biggest, all-terrain operational hexapod robot in the world. This 2.2-litre Turbo Diesel-powered, British-designed and -built walking machine can be piloted or remote WiFi-controlled, stands 2.8 metres high with a five meter working envelope and weighing in at just under two tonnes.

Boston Dynamics’ BigDog may have already been replaced by the beefier LS3, but that doesn’t mean it’s totally obsolete. Today the company unveiled a version of the quadruped equipped with an arm where a head (or tail) would go. As can be seen in the following video, it’s powerful enough to lift and toss a heavy cinder block.
Those robotic toys are getting cheaper and more complicated everyday. Tomorrows children are so lucky ! Demonstration by HiTEC at the 2008 Electric Flight Expo in Glendale, Arizona. Filmed with the Canon Powershot G9.
This robotic leg design is usefull for people who finds it hard to walk by himself. This robot is walking without a source of energy (of course it takes power from it’s potential energy) It doesn’t use any kind of motor or control. It is made of aluminum and it contains only mechanical components. The robot has three main parts, upper leg, lower leg and ankles.

The problem with Hexapod designs they are really slow in walking when compared to wheeled systems. But this design of hexapod has reached a level that it can use wheels, and advantages of a spider like hexapod. It can climb, and it can use it’s arms to take toys, it can crawl or it can pass through really narrow space. Hexapod Robots should have these kind of designs.

DASH (Dynamic Autonomous Sprawled Hexapod) is a resilient high-speed 16-gram hexapedal robot. Developed by P. Birkmeyer & R.S. Fearing, Biomimetic Millisystems Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley. Video presented at IEEE IROS 2009. The Dynamic Autonomous Sprawled Hexapod, aptly abbreviated DASH, really moves. It’s a high-speed six-legged runner that can be built in an hour using basically cardboard and polymer sheets for its frame.
This is the more advanced version of this robot, created by the University of Southern California. The robot is completely autonomous and trained by machine...
