For the last few Christmases robotic toys have been pretty high on most department store’s Best Sellers list. So its about time some-one had the idea of producing a range of mean-looking robots for us dorky grown-ups. The Lynxmotion BH3-R hexapod uses 18 servos to maneuver its six legs (each with three degrees of freedom) at up to a foot per second in any direction and can clear objects 4 inches high. The body is 18 inches wide and made of custom cut Lexan panels. The servo brackets are aluminium. The bot is targeted at robot enthusiasts and comes as a kit containing everything you need are the batteries and a screwdriver. It is pre-programmed to work with a 2.4Ghz wireless PlayStation 2 compatible controller but the installed programming is rather basic allowing only for multi-directional movement, multi-speed movement and 360-degree spins. You’ll have to add any further maneuvers you require acheived via on-board Windows software.
