It has been a couple of years when I started the design of the SnakeBot. I build a house in those years, now it’s finished and I can start to enjoy my hobby again of building robots. A lot has changed in those years, 3D printing for one, giving me a whole lot more options and tools to design my robots. secondly, my son is now 13 and wants to ‘work’ with me to build these bots an learn the skills needed to build them. A snake did not inspire him enough, so I gave him the option of selecting another animal. He came up with a spider, mainly based on the robot that is offered by RobugTix, this is indeed a really cool robot.

So, a spider it will be. Not purchased, but build from scratch based on this example.
