MorpHex the six legged robot that can transform into a ball





Remember Terrahawks? If you grew up in the 80’s you will. It was a Thunderbirds style sci fi puppet show that had robot spheres called Zeroids that rolled around and performed all sorts of uses in the show. Now, we are finally living in the future, and another demonstration to prove this, is the MorpHex hexapod robot!

MorphHex is a hexapod robot that can walk on six legs and transform into a ball shape. It can also roll in all directions. The MorpHex is divided into a series of sections, each with two motors, that help the robot roll around on the ground, open up, and transform the panels into legs so it can walk.

Add lazers, make this the size of a tank, and take my money!
