A few more thoughts on this idea.
I've been thinking about my hex walkers, I have two, one EH-3R round,
which wouldn't be able to implement the Genghis code on, because the
legs aren't inline, and one older H3 inline, 3-degree-of-freedome legs,
I'm thinking I could put the knees such that the upper and lower arms
were straight in line. Then I could just operate the shoulder's 2
servos, and having something very much like the original Genghis. The
legs would be a little clunky and heavy with an extra servo in them,
and they wouldn't have the more fluid motion you can get with 3 d.o.f.
But still, it should be possible to simulate the "original".
Anyone interested if I did copy/programmed an equivalent to Genghis as
a project? would want to see the results, or even participate in the
