     A hexapod is a revolutionary new "virtual ways" method
     of designing everything from machine tools to telescopes
     to robotics to simulators to vibration isolators.

     These are also called "Stewart Platforms" or "Parallel Actuators".

      More info on hexapods is in our Flutterwumper Library.
