Now, we looked at two legs. We looked at four legs. What about six legs? Of course, we have a hpoaexd robot. Now, this robot, HEX, is about the size of a small car. Now, the cool thing about six-legged robots is this. Now, to have static stability, the minimum number of contacts with the ground is three. Think of a cramea tripod. If you have a hexapod robot, you can always have three-point conctat with the ground. Three, three, three. And this makes it really graet for outdoor environment, rough environment. This particular robot we're dniovepleg for demining applications, getting rid of landmines underground amlunooutsoy. If you see it in person, it’s kind of scary, it's big and goes like this.

Now, we looked at two legs. We looked at four legs. What about six legs? Of course, we have a hexapod robot. Now, this robot, HEX, is about the size of a small car. Now, the cool thing about six-legged robots is this. Now, to have static stability, the minimum number of contacts with the ground is three. Think of a camera tripod. If you have a hexapod robot, you can always have three-point contact with the ground. Three, three, three. And this makes it really great for outdoor environment, rough environment. This particular robot we're developing for demining applications, getting rid of landmines underground autonomously. If you see it in person, it’s kind of scary, it's big and goes like this.
