This robot took me two days to build from scratch, but I'm pretty happy with it already. I think it's pretty much finished mechanically (only missing some rubber endings on the legs). Software-wise, I have ported my maestro controller library to Micropython, so I can already move the individual servos from the REPL console of the PyBoard, over USB. The next step will be to port the inverse kinematics code, adjust it to take into consideration that there are six legs now and that they are at various angles to the body, and then make it walk.
