Say hello to the new T8X.  The original 3D printed T8 spider robot is going mainstream!  We are now converting the spider robot you crave for into a much more affordable, mass produced version, known as the T8X.  It features everything you love about the original T8, at a fraction of the cost!

Instead of 3D printed parts, a high volume manufacturing method, injection molding, will be used to produce smooth, high quality and durable parts.

Featuring the Bigfoot™ Robotics Engine from the same creators of the original T8, it includes all the bells and whistles of the original version, plus more!  The Bigfoot™ Robotics Engine handles all the complex math calculations necessary for controlling multi-legged walking robots.  All complex computations are safely hidden from the user similar to a black box.  This means that the user only has to send short and simple commands to the robot (for example, instructing it to walk forward at a desired speed) and the engine will automatically take care of all the details, including inverse kinematics, leg trajectory planning, leg gait coordination, motor control, etc.  This makes it incredibly easy for anyone to play with advanced robotics.

Now Wi-Fi enabled, this opens up a lot more possibilities to the number of things you can do and the ways the robot can be controlled.

 

Key Specifications:

  • Injection molded exoskeleton
  • Wirelessly controlled via Wi-Fi
  • Ability to share scripts with others
  • Ability to communicate with other T8X
  • Remotely accessible from anywhere with Wi-Fi connection
  • Optional serial communications pins for direct control and custom development
  • Powered by 26 advanced Robugtix servo motors with PID control and customization features
  • Touch sensing capabilities
  • Built-in battery charging system
  • Rechargeable batteries included

Note: a separate Robugtix Controller is not needed for this product.  Everything you need to get started and to control the robot will be included by ordering just the T8X product.


Fixed shipping cost worldwide via HongKong Post.  This item is upgradable to FedEx International Economy or FedEx International Priority upon request (additional fees apply).
