By means of Bluetooth communication, the 4 characteristic parameters of the 2 oscillators, can be modified: amplitude, frequency, phase and offset.
With the sign of the phase value, you can change the movement direction: forward or backward. If the oscillators have the same value of phase, movement is not achieved.
By varying the offset value (midpoint of the oscillations) the device can move in different directions.

MAF, this is one of the most creative robot I have ever seen. The only problem is that I always said the same to all the robots you have designed! :-) You really are the most creative person I have ever met. Congratulations!!!!

I've used one Arduino pro mini, two servos (medium size), a cheap bluetooth modem and a 9v battery. (Optionally, you can use also a 7805 to regulated the voltage to 5v)
The code is based on "ArduSnake library: Locomotion of modular snake robots" by ObiJuan. (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:21401)
I've improved the bluetooth communication, in that way, you can modify the 4 characteristic parameters of the oscillators easily in real time.
