Halloween Walker

Check out this creepy Halloween walker on YouTube:

According to WGhost9, it is a lot more complicated than it looks.

Introducing the Creeper 2: My brand new hexapod.

Designed, built and programmed in about record 3 weeks! It runs C on an Axon microcontroller. It uses all digital servos and can lift over twice its body weight. The software (soon to be given out open source) allows for 6 synchronous degrees of motion. Future additions will include foot sensors and a remote control option.

Mike and I have a Halloween pumpkin that rolls around the floor making farting noises that we fill with batteries every year. I really should take a video of it for posterity. I would be heartbroken if it ever quit working.
