Transforming Hexapod Robot

Norwegian engineer Kare Halvorsen has a passion for hexapods. Since 2066 he has created robotic creatures that walks on six legs. His latest project MorpHex this is a sphere shaped hexapod that rolls freely like a ball, has different sort of locomotion for moving in any direction, variable inner-body dimensions, transforms from a sphere shape into a hexapod and vice versa, walks like a hexapod.

Many hexapod robots are biologically inspired by Hexapoda locomotion. Hexapods may be used to test biological theories about insect locomotion, motor control, and neurobiology.
