The new T8X 3d printed robotic spider is now available for every advanced robotics enthusiast as it comes at a much lower price than its predecessor. This is mainly because it’s no longer 3d-printed but uses a high volume manufacturing method, injection molding.
In order to control this creepy piece of tech you only need to use short and simple commands, this makes it easy for anyone to play with the T8X. One of the most interesting features is the ability to communicate with other of its robotic siblings. Powered by 26 advanced Robugtix servo motors with PID control, the robot comes preloaded with the company’s Bigfoot Inverse Kinematics Engine to control the legs, body position, and walking gait.
The Bigfoot™ Inverse Kinematics Engine is the brain which performs all of the necessary calculations for smoothly controlling the motions of the robot in real time. The T8X can move each of its legs independently and performs actions that imitate real life arachnids, making it perfect for creeping behind friends.
This version comes with a separate Robugtix Controller which grants wireless control via Wi-Fi and is remotely accessible from anywhere with Wi-Fi connection. And you have two options for external shell: standard black plastic shell and a hairy skin version. It can be preordered at Robugtix for the price of 675.00$.
