    What are the volts of gear motor????

    Very sweet, simple and clever!

    Reverse direction is obvious, just reverse the motor leads. Any thoughts on a turning mechanism? Two gear motors? That would get complicated pretty quickly. Maybe a small rotating platform (foot) beneath the base, with a stepper motor. When the legs lift, the stepper could rotate the platform some degrees. Then the next step would be at an angle... Could do this without a stepper motor by just gearing off the gear motor and turning the foot by just a small amount each time so it would walk in a circle...

    Thanks very much! Nicely elegant design.
