MorpHex: An Amazing 6-Legged Robot That Transforms Itself Into a Ball [Video]

Hey, that thing looks like Samus’s morph ball!

The main goal of this project was to make a hexapod robot that could transform into a sphere shape and back. In “sphere mode” the robot should be able to roll freely like a ball.

  2. @MaryAnne watch this video without the tranquilizing elevator music and it begins to look a lot more threatening.
