Super excited for Coin. Very cool.
So interesting a new channel to emerge into the entertainment scene, and from the looks of it, they are not doing too shabby with their YouTube channels. A far cry from the struggling waiters.
My hexapod from 2000 had a PIC 16C84F and the servo leg positions for its gaits were precomputed, the data filled the entire micro-controller. Linear interpolated gait look-up tables were the way to go. It seems that the approach is still a sound one. http://techcrunch.com/2014/07/31/watch-this-robot-learn-to-walk-off-an-injury/
