SpiderBot prompts laser envy

[Daniel's] horrifying hexapod makes us wish we were sitting next to a laser cutter. The parts are cut from 4.9mm plywood and include laser-sculpted sections to allow the twenty servos to properly seat in their mounting spaces. We would suggest that you build it in secret so as not to ruin the surprise when your house mates come home to find this romping around their room.

Sadly, we couldn’t find video of this in action but go look at this other hexapod if the still shots aren’t good enough. Adding two legs to the party, you behold the video after the break of the 8-legged spider milled from ABS.

    They refferred to the first one as SpiderBot and it only has 6 legs, wheras spiders have 8…

    …ahhh who cares. Just words, ya know?

  2. Very cool!

    My favorite manmade spider is still this one:

    (The spider car built by some guys in Canada a couple of years ago.)

  3. That is probably the scariest thing I have ever seen on the internet…

    I wish I was sitting next to a laser cutter so I could zap it’s legs off and watch it twitch. Jesus.

    Cool though.
