Twitchy the Hexapod (named for its twitchy, mildly unstable manner) is an acrylic laser-cut hexapod that has twelve degrees of freedom. It is powered by an Arduino that takes input from an Electric Imp, which is in turn connected to a Twitch server, so you can control him over the internet -- it's Twitch Plays Twitchy, where you can make it walk forward and backward, turn left and right, and wave!
