Well, what is the Insect Bot. Actually it's not really an insect because it only has four legs, insects does have six of them, right? However, the robot got the name because of his shape with the thin wire legs and the IR sensor rosed up.
That robot already has a long history. first I built one with standard servos and an Arduino UNO but soon I wanted it smaller and even more easy to build. After a couple of attempts with different designs this one is the final one.

The following is the step by step description, how to assemble the robot and if you are already a bit skilled in such things then it will not take you more than one hour of your time.This first video shows how the robot could walk after switching it on for the first time and without adjusting the legs :-)
