Toys of the Future: Robot Spider-T8




Robugtix Company from Hong Kong prepares to release a set of robotic tarantula T8, which is sure to make a lasting impression on anyone malomalskoy amateur robotics and 3D-printing technology. However, for it will have to fork out a lasting impression quite a tidy sum of $ 1,350.

Runs 26 through T8 servos Hitec HS-35HD: three pieces arranged in each foot robot, a few – in the rear. They allow the robot to move the belly. All low-powered motors, but working in tandem, they allow you to do pretty realistic behavior of the robot spider and eventually reduce its maximum value. In the sale T8 must be received on September 30 this year.


The company also plans to release a cheaper version called iitsii – it is smaller than T8 and does not have a realistic case. Low-cost model uses 20 servo drives (which are still cheaper than those used in T8) and will be offered for a relatively affordable $ 250. In the sale of this kit will arrive on August 31.


A simpler and cheaper iitsii in all its glory

For the management of paws, body movement and walking in both models meet program cover Bigfoot Inverse Kinematics Engine, developed by the same Robugtix. Himself to program a robot spider on a realistic behavior is not necessary. Unfortunately, will have to fork out for Robugtix Controller joystick and four batteries AA, which are not included and are available for an additional $ 85. The controller uses a wireless module Xbee, which sends commands to the robot, causing it to wander the room and scare your parents, friends, and your girl. The walls and ceiling robot, unfortunately, does not know how to crawl.



Look at the T8 and iitsii can be in the video.

Pre-order for both models through the company’s official website Robugtix can now. Price after the official start of sales will increase for sure.
