The is the most realistic robotic spider in the World. The movements are just creepy spider-like, superb.
This is the Robugtix T8 Spider. Created by Robugtix, a Hongkong based company that focuses on creating bio-inspired multi-legged robots.
Robugtix Spider is created with all 3D printed parts making it very lightweight at only 300 grams. It consists of 26 super micro hi-tech servo motors – Three (3) motors in each leg and two at the back tail. The amount of motors used plays a huge factor for its flawless spider-like movements – usually only 3 motors are used for the entire body.
The real breakthrough here is the advanced algorithm used for controlling each leg’s movements and distribution of the spider’s weight while moving. This reflects how much research and knowledge are applied into the algorithm to make it very realistic.
The Robugtix comes with a controller, with pre-programmed walking, reverse kinematics sequences to imitate a real life spider.
