The Mantis Walker is a two servo walking robot. I've included the build instructions as a PDF.
It uses an ultrasonic sensor to detect and avoid obstacles in it's path as shown in this video:
Print out the body, the battery holder and the legs and follow the instructions to build.
I have included the Arduino sketch and the wiring diagram for the electronics is in the PDF.
