Figure Friday: MorpHex, The robot that can literally transform and roll out!

I stumbled upon a fellow Norwegian, who has taken upon himself to make his own robots. This particular robot is called "MorpHex", and looks amazingly complicated to me, yet surprisingly elegant. I like this, because there is a thought behind both design and the way it's going to behave - design and function are complimenting each other.

There's obviously also the fact that it can transform - and roll out. I'm glad there are people out there making insanely cool creations like this on their spare time.

More information on the MorpHex and his other projects can be found on his site Robot-Kits.

Enjoy your weekend!
