Spooky Tech

The Halloween Countdown, Day 28

Spotted on Boing Boing, Creeper 2, "a robotic spider to pass out candy at Halloween" (or terrify your household pets and children).

"It runs C on an Axon microcontroller. It uses all digital servos and can lift over twice its body weight. The software (soon to be given out open source) allows for 6 synchronous degrees of motion. Future additions will include foot sensors and a remote control option."

Wish my soldering-fu was stronger!
