I don't want to spend that much on a spider-robot.

Seeing spiders isn't what bothers me. It's when I feel one of those little 8 legged freaks of nature crawling on me that I freak the hell out. I don't know what it is, but there's just something about the way those 8 hair legs just kind of lazily make their way up your arm while you freeze in terror that I just can't take.

I'm jealous. I don't have any cool spiders around here. If I need a crawly thing fix I go down to the tide pools and watch the tiny crabs.

It's like a hypnotic Alizée Jacotey ... in robot spider form.

Spiders are attracted to areas that are not easily seen by predators, that are relatively warm, and that have food detritus that can attract insect prey. Places, like, say, the underside of a desk under a computer keyboard.

What the heck does "3-d printed" mean when it requires 26 additional motors to install?  It means the body panels were 3-d printed.  Thanks for the meaningless buzzword.

Also it has very impressive inverse kninematics while the spider keeps all eight legs firmly planted in place.  Would it have killed them to show a video of it, you know, WALKING?  It can walk in a straight line, right?

Not a spider, but a close relative. With adorable little babies.

I guess so, but mostly you see garden spiders constructing trapezes in inconvenient places, with the big fat spider hanging in your face.

We have those guys in the south, too. They mainly like to build their web in front of the door so you walk through it when you get home at night.

Spiders need to more clearly perform a service and become cuter. Humans and other critters are covered in free food we don't particularly mind shedding.
