This is just a sample test of the bot, crawling. This is only my curiosity of how this bot can move with joints using 6 servos all in all and just a microcore as the controller. It can't move forward perfectly yet, but the feet should be angled or bent accordingly, to achieve proper forward motion. By the way, I'm not that serious about this bot. This may or will be dissected later on. I just want to share it with you guys and to let you know, that a single microcore circuit, using all 6 Nv's can do such an interesting behavior for the bot, as always! Cool isn't it? Cheers everyone! ;-)
P.S. This kind of bot (when perfectly built) can reverse, turn left and right. It can also be phototropic or photophobic. And so much more! But I'm too lazy for now to do that. Maybe...some other time...we'll see!
This bot was already dissected yesterday. The motors will be used for my future bots. Poor creature!
