HexPi is my first attempt at building a hexapod robot. I’ve been wanting to build a hexapod robot for a long time, and finally bit the bullet and ordered a chassis and a LOT of inexpensive servos.

During the build process, I realized my GWS MT-1 single channel servo tester would not suffice for testing HexPi, so I started developing my “The Better Mousetrap Servo Tester” – which curently can control eight servos at the same time with four joysticks, but will be expanded to controlling 16 servos soon.

Incidentally, “The Better Mousetrap Servo Tester” is based on RoboPi, running stand-alone with firmware for testing servos.
