From Kåre Halvorsen project on the Lynxmotion forums:

Sphere shaped hexapod that I plan to give the following features:

  • Roll freely like a ball
  • Have different sort of locomotion for moving in any direction
  • Variable inner-body dimensions
  • Transform from a sphere shape into a hexapod and vice versa
  • Walk like a hexapod

 

Project's summary on Robotee and original forum thread.
