3D-Printed Arachnid Robots
This 3D-Printed Spider by 'Robugtix' Moves Like a Real Arachnid

By: Laura McQuarrie (Superstar) Jul 11, 13

Spiders and robots can be scary enough on their own, and this 3D-printed product by ‘Robugtix’ combines the two into one creepy crawly critter.

The robotic ‘T8’ arachnid is packed with motors and engines that makes it move just like a real spider. Its eight spidery limbs can be operated manually with a Robugtix controller, or the T8 can have a set of pre-programmed moves. Robotics have come a long way, and this creature has smooth movements that are very life-like.

This is an awesome product for bug-lovers, but arachnophobes will want to keep their distance—this super-sized critter is deceptively realistic. The 3D-printed critter is priced at $1,350, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t accidentally step on it.
