High-tech spider for hazardous missions

High-tech spider for hazardous missions via jwz.

Spiders are very agile, and some can even jump. They owe this capability to their hydraulically operated limbs. Researchers have now designed a mobile robot modeled on the same principle that moves spider legs. Created using a 3-D printing process, this lightweight can explore terrain that is beyond human reach.

  1. That is a very cool looking spider. When will Adafruit have these in stock?

    It’s 3D printed – just download it from Thingiverse and make as many as you like!
