Dancing Hexapod on the Viral Video Circuit
     



Students at the HTL Saalfelden
engineering school created Hexapodmeisterschaft, a six legged
dancing robot. The creepy looking robot won the dancing category of the
2008 Austrian
Hexapod Championships with this dance to the tune of Mambo #5. The
contest took place back in April and since then this video has slowly
been climbing the Internet viral video popularity charts. What most of
the sites carrying this video don't talk about though is the contest
itself. While Hexapodmeisterschaft may be the most visible hexapod,
there plenty of others at the event, competing in both the dance
category and in a hexapod race. You can find videos of the other
hexapods on the competition
forum and on
YouTube. If you're in Austria, you should plan on going to next
year's contest in April of 2009.
