Walker v1

This was my first walking robot.  It had a 4nv micorcore
for a brain, and little else.  As you can see in the picture
above I used 12-gauge copper wire for the legs, this
turned out to be a bad idea, for more than one reason.
The most obvious reason was that copper is very weak.
The second reason was that when I finally got around
to finishing the circuit and mounting it on the robot, the
legs shorted out the motor and burned up the 245 motor
driver.  This robot had the shortest life span of any I've
built, about 35 seconds.
