Kåre Halvorsen (aka Zenta), from Norway created this mind blowing creation in his garage. He first shared about his plan in his website and then after completion, he posted a video at his youtube channel.
Zenta, who is an assistant engineer at Assistive Technology Centre for Rogaland, has created many robots earlier. He is well known for his robotic creations under very tight budgets and requirements which are inspired by nature and insects.
This time he created a spider inspired Robot called MX-Phoenix hexapod which can walk in terrains and climb the stairs easily. MX- Phoenix hexapod consists of 6 Dynamixel MX-64T Robot Actuator and 12 Dynamixel MX-106T Robot Actuator motors. All the body parts are 3D printed.
Kare Halvorsen told that he wanted to create a robot under 5.5Kg weight. The total weight of MX- Phoenix hexapod is 4,72kg and he says he is pretty much satisfied by this.
MX- Phoenix hexapod is controlled by a remote control based on ArbotiX Commander v2.0 Kit.
Here is the latest video shared by Zenta at his youtube channel.

Robotic creations, created by zenta are mostly inspired by Nature. Previously, he created robot called apod which was inspired by ants. Apod can walk on both plain surfaces and rough terrain areas. Apod also has capability to hold things and take it from one place to another.
