Posted Aug 31, 2009


Drew the robotics guy decided to hack up a little experiment that makes a spider robot work with Nintendo Wiimotes. The Wiimotes can even make the spider flip upside down. It took Drew about $1,000 to put the whole thing together.

To put together the experiment, Drew used steel plates, copper, aluminum tubing, a 7.4 1100 mAh lithium-polymer battery, a pair of XBee radio modules to communicate with the robot, a Pololu micro SSC board and eight HX12K servos.

?Created for entertainment purposes. It is made to dance and entertain people at conventions and parties,? stated Drew.
