Arachnophobia: from the Greek: aráchnē, “spider” and phóbos, “fear” is the fear of spiders. Did you know that 50% of women and 10% of men show symptoms of this phobia? Well fret no more… or do but be prepared for the terrifying 3D spiderbot Robugtix T8.
This Tarantula-like robot could be a very twisted gift for an arachnophobic or anyone who, like me, is just afraid of spiders. At least when it comes to huge, lethal spiders.
Although a bit expensive (meaning $1.350) this 3D-printed teaser toy is powered by a Bigfoot Inverse Kinematics Engine to allow a life-like movement. It has it’s own firmware and it can be controlled with the wireless Robugtix™ Controller (not included). It also has an interface to program it with simple commands, creating your own sequences, so that you can use your imagination to play with it.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=HfiHOpv6HtI]
So, already thinking of including the Robugtix T8 in your wish list for Santa? Well, start behaving or you’ll get none. It’s a costly little gadget for naughty boys… or girls! (Spoiler alert! The Robugtix T8 weighs 1 kilogram. It’s not really such a “little toy” as one might think).
