Hexbug Inchworm Update

Just a quick heads up (I know it’s been months but better late than never ;))

I’m having trouble completing my Hexbug Inchworm project due to the small size of the Hexbug. It’s hard to accomodate an arduino and a battery, and my previous attempts at mounting the arduino on top have had influence on the movement due to a change of the center of mass. I didn’t like how wobbly it had become. It couldn’t even walk straight anymore. So this is why I’ve been scouting for parts mostly since the last entry.

To make matters worse, I’m still not sure if I should just stick with the robot wandering around aimlessly or if I would like some more sophisticated means of movement (which would necessitate additional sensors).

So there it is. I’m back to the planning board and searching for parts and that’s why there’s no cool autonomous hexbug yet.

Someday, maybe. 🙂
