Mar 17 2011What Are You, Taunting Me?: Geekologie Reader Builds Homemade Robotic Spider


"Dammit, GW, spiders have eight legs." YOU SHUT UP.

This is SAMSA II, a hexapod robot built by Uruguayan Geekologie Reader pabloxid. Why he decided to send me a video of the thing I have no idea, but I assume it has something to do with luring me to Uruguay to rough him up a bit only to fall into some sort of robotic trap and get my nuts tampered with for awhile. NO THANKS. That said, I was too afraid to watch this thing alone so I made my ladyfriend watch it with me (who hates robots almost as much as I do and spiders even more) and she started beating laptop's monitor with a rolled up magazine. WTF, GIRL?! STOP DILLY-DALLYIN' AND USE YOUR FLIP-FLOP!

Hit the jump for the arachnaboticphobia in action.

Thanks Pablo, too bad I wasn't foolish enough to fall for your trap, huh? (Yes I did too, I'll be there in 14-hours)

Very cool! Now if only it could jump, then it would truly be spider like.

actually its not a spider. bcause spiders always have 8 legs. its just a cyber bug.

Suck up! He is just trying to impress Sky-net, and the Dark rob-o-verlord.

It would be cool if you could use a robot spider to kill real spiders....I'd get 10

OMG, I want wait...I want 100. That should be a good start for an army, er, collection.
All they need are laser beams for eyes and big, snapping jaws with sharp teeth.

Uruguay FTW!!! I'm from that country, but I don't build frakkin'' robots :(

Now that's wicked. Even if it isn't an arachnid... ;)
