3D-printed Spiderbot is Freakishly Lifelike, Better Dancer than You

Loving this 3D-printed dance machine "Spider Octopod Robot" from the folks at Robugtix. It's called T8, and you won't believe how fluidly this thing moves.

Via Robugtix:

T8 is a wirelessly controlled bio-inspired octopod robot made with high resolution 3D printed parts. It uses a total of 26 motors: 3 in each leg and 2 in the abdomen. It is powered by the Bigfoot™ Inverse Kinematics Engine which performs all of the necessary calculations for smoothly controlling the motions of the robot in real time.


And it's available for pre-order now! (For $1350!)





Seriously, nobody thinks these aren't the precursors for Tachikomas?
