Details: We've seen plenty of walkers before, but I haven't seen a fully steerable hexapod that uses only two motors before. One large Power Functions motor handles the walking motion, and a second motor articulates the body at two points to allow it to change directions. It's a surprisingly simple solution, but it works well. The other nice thing is that we now finally have a walker design that can be made with a LEGO robotics kit without using all of the motors in the kit.
