This is hilarious!
This is some kind of nasty, freaky, straight out of a sci-fi flick, creature that eats poop. Some think it might be a Tubifex tubifex. Whatever it is, it’s fuckin yuck.
Mocking birds are cool and good at imitating sounds, but I think the lyre bird has them beat.
This is just begging for a nice commercial jingle.
A-Pod is an ant inspired hexapod robot with a 2 DOF abdomen (tail), a 3 DOF head with large mandibles. 6 legs with 3 DOF each. Total 25 servos. This video demonstrates body movement and mandible control. I still have to do some mechanical improvements to the legs (therefore little walking). The robot are remotely controlled with a custom 2,4 GHz RC transmitter.
