Robotic Spider Phase 1

2006 • Posted by Kai @ 10:09 AM

So based on Theo Jansen’s theory, I am going to make a “Robotic Spider”, which would be powered by battery motor. The renderings just showing the basic concept what the structure of the spider would be. I am still adjusting the angel of the legs, to make them walk more like a spider.

Materiality is a big issue here because I was thinking using wood to build the skeleton, but what kind of material is proper to make the joints, and how to make the them rolling smoothly would be the hardest part of this project.
