Robotics: Link Crawler

Here's a bot that I built a while back that I named link crawler due to the wonky linkage. It was a bit low-end, but it actually stomped around like it might of had a purpose. It was controlled by a basic stamp microcontroller from parallaxinc, used 6 servos for motion, and was unfortunately sensor-less for its short lifespan due to the fact that this project was an exploration of walking style robots. There's something about seeing a fabricated object with moving appendages that never ceases to amaze me.
