IPhone-Controlled Hexapod Robot Walks Into Our Lives

Robert Stephenson is a robotics student in the UK, and he’s created an app for the iPhone that allows you to control a robot. For his tests, Robert uses his hexapod robot.

In the video below, you can see the app in action. It’s pretty straightforward until you see how precise the maneuvers can get. The app can easily control each of the robot’s legs. I really like the way that the iPhone’s accelerometer is used to control the ‘bots’ movements.

You can find a bunch of different videos over at Robert’s YouTube Channel, Blobbingtonsmithe. He can even control the robot with a PS3 controller!
