This spider is a robot but it moves very naturally. In fact, it’s wirelessly controlled, built from 3D printed parts and uses a total of 26 motors. That’s 3 motors in each leg and two in its abdomen. As the video explains the Bigfoot Inverse Kinematics Engine does all the calculations for keeping the movement look fluid.
The T8 is made by Robugtix. They’ll be enjoying lots of success with this video as it travels the web. You can pre-order the T8 spider here before it’s Sep 2013 release date. How much? $1,350. Don’t squish this one.
