Make a complex walking robot with just two motors

I'm kind of in love with this project. I had noticed the Jansen walker devices a while back. But I didn't realize anyone made smaller versions. I like walker-type robots, but usually they involve lots of motors for all the different joints. This method does all the complex movement via linkages between the parts. So you get this complicated-looking bot, but the electronics can just be an Arduino controlling 2 motors, or perhaps a Lego NXT doing the same.
