MSR-H101 Hexapod kit

Robot builder Matt Denton apparently first built a
one-off Hexapod robot for himself some time ago, but he's now taken
things one big step further and is offering a kit of a similar bot to
the general public through Micromagic Systems. The
MSR-101 Hexapod looks to be relatively simple to get going
straight out of the box, with it boasting a built-in HexEngine with
plenty of pre-loaded settings, and built-in PS2 controller suppport,
which'll let you parade your creation about without having to mess
around with it too much beforehand. Of course, there's also plenty of
room for more experienced robot builders to get their hands dirty, and
Micromagic is more than happy to sell you a whole slew of optional
add-ons for the kit. Those just looking to get started, however, can
simply grab the base kit in their choice of black, red, or silver for
an entirely reasonable €105, or roughly $168.
