Billy, the blue beetle is a proof-of-concept 3D printed hexapod robot. After 20 days of rapid prototyping it can already walk and climb obstacles. Designed by Jonathan Spitz, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology PhD student in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
Billy's components include:
1 Arduino Leonardo
1 Motor Driver
1 BlueSMiRF bluetooth module
2 LiPo batteries (3.7V 2000mAh each)
2 DC motors + encoders
A bunch of screws and 3D printed parts
Billy can be controlled from a smartphone via Bluetooth, and has 2 different sets of legs: straight ones (shown being printed) or spiral ones (shown on Billy).
