SYMAPOD by Colin MacKenzie

Symapod has its legs oriented in a star configuration. 
This star configuration allows it to instantaneously travel in any
direction without turning or reorientating itself. As 
you can see in the picture there is no front to a symapod! 

The RC servos in this robot have been modified and have 
had thier control circuit (held inside the servo intself) removed and
replaced with a digital servo controller I designed. This 
new digital controller allows me to read/write to the servo as
registers, including force, speed and position using the 
standard I2C (IIC) bus implimentation.
