Hexapod gets an upgrade

The very cool Hexapod robot from Micromagic Systems has just received an upgrade - its very own router!
Hexapod's creator, Matt Denton has taken it to the next level with the design of a routing head attachment for the robot. Currently implemented as floating pen, the robot interprets DXF files into positional XYZ commands for the body of the robot. The body's position is controlled by 6 three-degrees-of-freedom legs, using an onboard processor - the p.Brain.
Hexapod's fluiditiy of motion really has to be seen to believed!
