Spider Robot

Description: This robot was built out of a remote control spider shell. Instead of using servos for mobility, I used the spider's DC motor mechanism so the legs would still move.

The C# application has an autonomous mode. Between responses, there are random timers that give the spider a twitchy realistic attack movement.
