The previous two versions of this projects were kinda done on the side of #Kubik M0 to see if this approach even makes any sense. I finally decided to go for it, so here is a version three, with a new PCB:

and an improved design of the legs (to make them use less acrylic, so you can fit more of them on a sheet):

The PCB now includes, apart from the previous microcontroller, battery protection, battery charging and battery holder, also a tiny buzzer and a place to install an IR sensor — this way I can report the status of the robot with beeps, and control it with a TV remote.

Any further sensors and other hardware can be added as FeatherWing shields to the front of the robot.
