Looks like the folks over at OpenSCB project are making great progress.
From Julien Rouviere :
This is an hexapod made with OpenSCB, the open source servo controller, a MSR µBug frame, 19 mystery SD90 servos and a small bike light! The board is running realtime translation/rotation matrix for body orientation and a 3 DoF inverse kinematic algorithm on each leg. Four channels are mixed together to drive the hexapod, a fifth channel is used to alternate between several modes with a switch on the radio.OpenSCB hexapod control demo from Julien Rouviere on Vimeo.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
