CES: Meet the Mini Hexapodinno


While we were browsing around the show floor, we saw a pretty cool little robot called the Mini Hexapodinno. As the name suggests, it’s a hexapod robot that utilizes sonar and can be programmed using BASIC. Although its not as cool as some of the other robots that we’ve seen, we still have a special place in our hearts for hexapods.

    For anyone interested, this is a retailer that Innovati works with where you can purchase the mini hexapodinno online:

    It isn’t exactly cheap.

    interesting (I realize I’m a year+ late) as a Sonar Technician, I’m curious how exactly they are utilizing “sonar” on this. I suppose a passive system could be used to avoid noisy areas… to use an active sonar that is high frequency enough to be useful but not audible is conceivable, but infrared strikes me as cheaper and using less power.
    makes me wonder if it really is Sonar.
