This new robot is called Danger Monkey.

Its goal is to be able move on a horizontal wooden 2 by 4 stud.
To complicate things a little however there are obstacles as you can see,
and they that need to be avoided.

I've tried several designs, some with wheels, and others with arms.
My 2 arm version is working best so far.

I'm using an Arduino as microcontroller. The servos are cheap Hitec HS322-HD.
Each arm has 2 lever-switches to detect pressure in front and below.

This actually comes from a challenge at the office, where we have a much bigger version of this
that goes around the ceiling of our building.

Next step is to see if it works there.
