Vorpal Hexapod Quick Links:
This page documents activities that use one or more Vorpal Hexapods. We are continually adding to this list. Feel free to suggest your own ideas and we will consider including them on this page with credit to the person who suggested them. We will even give Vorpal Hexapod t-shirts to a random selection of contributors! (USA shipping only at the present.) Send your suggested activities to firstname.lastname@example.org
Activities that Do Not Require Accessories or ScratchX Programming
The activities in this section only require the Vorpal Hexapod and Gamepad, and sometimes common household items. After building the robot and gamepad and doing some tests, you should first become familiar with the gamepad functions. Although there are sixty different motions built in to the gamepad, they are organized in a way that makes them fairly easy to learn. Once you have learned the basics, these simple activities will help you learn how to rapidly switch between different leg motions to solve problems!
