All you would have to do is not attach two of the legs and implement a 4-legged walking gait in PoMoCo.

We did a very compact 4-legged version a while back. While a bit cheaper, we figured 6 legs was a bit cheaper.

Now two-legged, that we're working on (with MAKE Magazine at that). ;)

Is it a two-legged humanoid robot project?

Yup! We'll be announcing with lots more details soon (lots of exciting new partnerships), and launching a big survey, and work on it very openly on the forums/blog. The hope is to launch the kickstarter at Maker Faire San Mateo.

I'm working on something like what Michael has put together for controlling hexy using IK to calculate leg positions, but working entirely on the Servotor32. My aim is to connect a ps3 controller to hexy directly and control it as Michael does.

I've done the interesting task of solving the IK and doing the math, now I need to implement it properly which I would much rather grab someone else's solution if it's available.
