Hello everyone! I am back with a new robot which is probably my best one yet. The WALL CRAWLING SPID3R! I recently bought some new sensors for using in my robots. I bought an ultrasonic sensor, a gyro sensor, a touch sensor and a sound sensor. This robot does not use all of them because the e3 brick has only 4 ports for installing sensors. I have made this spider for the Halloween contest. This is only the prototype version and this kind of technology is used in many of the robots being developed in robotics labs around the world. One of these robots is the GECKO, a robot which has suction pads on its feet to climb. My robot does not have suction pads so it can't climb walls, but I have managed to make it have the abilities of a real spider. It utilises three motors, two for operating the arms and one for opening and closing the jaws. The arms move up and down using a simple mechanism which is explained in ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. It uses five sensors for self defence and for exploring its surroundings: ultrasonic, colour, sound and two touch sensors. Check out the ADDITIONAL INFORAMATION.

This is a very simple robot. I built it to mess around with.
