Hexapod is a six legged robot created by a UK robotics student Robert Stephenson. What's special about this Hexapod is that it's controlled by iPhone and Android OS powered HTC Hero. Robert Stephenson also developed iPhone & Android apps to control the Hexapod robot.

watch this video!!

You might also ask whats so new or different in controlling a robot by mobile phone? You must watch the video and see how accurately the leg movements are controlled, how the robot dances and moves. When it wasn't enough, Stephen shows Hexapod playing a PS3 game being controlled by iOS and Android OS phones.

The Android Kinamatic App communicates via a bluetooth connection.

Earlier he needed a computer to route, now he routes iphod touch via Droid phone with his self built Android Server App.

I hope you enjoyed it and in future we will be seeing more devices being controlled by these two powerful iOS & Android OS.

One of my last projects was a 4x4 differential drone, built from scratch, remotely controlled via Bluetooth using an Android smartphone.
Schematics / demo video here: http://www.pocketmagic.net/?p=1398
Besides ultrasonic sensors, the robot is about to be equipped with a homemade geiger counter sensor to detect "exotic" environment parameters
like the dangerous ionizing radiation. There are quite a few possibilities since the robot has an ATmega microcontroller that can easily
support additional sensors.
The data is sent back to the Android device, via bluetooth.
