d1cda7846e23f222bf1b92fa199105ffKåre Halvorsen, aka Zenta, builds robots. His specialty is the hexapod, like the A-Pod in the video below which is based on the body of the ant. Not only is the A-Pod six legged, it has a flexible abdomen that includes a “tail” section and an impressive set of mandibles. The dexterity, control, and precision of its movements are fantastic. It can even pour you a drink!
