    Whoa now, don’t forget that Gadgets posted about the Hexabot as soon as that Instructable hit the net. http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/12/16/hexabot-a-walking-ro.html

    I rode that baby. It was created entirely in the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Club, using a lot of parts provided by the club. I think Rich even donated the Hexabot to the club when he was finished. It would be AMAZING for the Robotics Club if he won.

    Go Rich! You’re the man!

    This reminds me of a joke my uncle told me when I was a kid. A snail goes into a car dealership and tells the manager: “I’ll buy a car from you, but only if you paint the letter S on it.” When the manager asks him why, he says: “so when I drive by, people will say, WOW, look at that little S car go!”

    It has three gears: slow, slower and slowest.

    Do recall that if you win, that 20K of tools will count as income for the year. Tax brackets and all that.
