Twenty-six servo motors make this robot move like a real spider. Add a realistic 3D-printed tarantula costume shell and you get this terrifying toy.
The Robugtix T8 is an eight-legged robot that can move so much like a real spider, you’ll be tempted to smash it. But it’s expensive — don’t smash it.
Each leg of the robot contains three motors, and two more are in the abdomen just to make the movement extra realistic and creepy. The outer shell is produced in a 3D printer, but it’s really just for show. Underneath it’s just your basic eight-legged terrifying robot.
You control the spider, but you only have to tell it where to go; it calculates the necessary movies on its own. And it moves like a real spider -until it starts dancing the boogie! Want to make your own? The kit goes on sale in August. Link -via Digg
