SpiderbotUsing a Javelin Stamp as the micro controller brain and an ultrasonic range sensor for eyes, Steffen Schütte from Germany created this cute six legged robot called RoboSpider.

Based on readings from the sensors, the robot then executes one of the following four actions: forward, escape, feign death, dodge.

Steffen has gone on to create RoboSpider II and a Hexapod.
