Wow! Talking about some creepy quick movement:)

To make the spider, you just add 2 wCK modules to a 5710K or 5710T-S02 RoboBuilder kit (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/educational-division-robobuilder.aspx).

That is so cool Alex, Was each spider programed to react to each other's movements??in unison. Very cool.

I'm not sure. My guess would be that their using one IR remote to send the same command to both of the robots.

I suspect they're just both running the same sequence. That's actually what I meant, thanks for the correction meta. Lack of a wide vocabulary always gets me into trouble, haha.

Oh why can't we just invent the damn Matrix already so that I can download the Merriam-Webster Dictionary into my brain:D

It will if you shred and then burn it first.

Aww, how kind of you. You're telling me that my brain is just full of so much knowledge already that there isn't much room left;)

That is beyond cool... I always wondered if anyone out there bought two additional actuators on top of the standard kit to bring it up to 18DOF like some of the other kits out there... Always love seeing hexapod implementation with different kits...
