Robot is designed for these contests: 

This is a zigbee based walker.  I also have a USB version of this robot.

I use this robot along with a custom Windows application that I wrote to experiment with different walking gates.  I have also started experimenting with using an accelerameter for closed loop balance.

Cybernetic Augmentation with Fabric PCBs

So, today on Hack-A-Day and Sparkfun I saw a couple of related new postings. The fabric PCBs caught my eye and then I noticed that the Sparkfun LilyPad circuits were co-developed with the same person, Leah Buechley, that posted about the fabric PCBs.
