    ps2 Lynxmotion R/C Spider Uses PS2 Controller

    via Gizmondo

    For those who love everything R/C, this Lynxmotion hexapod kit is pretty dorktastically awesome. While technically 2 legs short of spider status, this hexapod has excellent mobility, as 18 servos drive the legs (featuring 3 degrees of freedom) a foot per second and over obstacles up to 4" high. Oh, and it's preprogrammed to work with a 2.4Ghz wireless PlayStation 2 compatible controller.

    The thing to remember here is that, as a kit, the $750 Lynxmotion BH3-R doesn't have all the polish of a retail product, but it leaves the platform open to robot enthusiasts.

    Windows software allows you to customize movement over its basic programming that only supports multi-directional, multi-speed movement and 360-degree spins. Maybe you'd like your robot to do the robot, accomplishing feats of engineering that even Bender cannot fathom.

    And after that, you can train it to hexa-fist beer and really subvert mankind's progress.

    Nice, the US army is currently using Xbox 360 controllers for their FFW program.

    I didn't know the PS2 even had wireless controllers!

    You should buy some glasses, here's a Dual Shock 2:



    and here's a sixaxis:



    Notice the difference? Now which one does the one in the picture look like? the thing might have been done with a ps2 controller but that image clearly is a sixaxis. kthxbai
