Watch This Salsa-Dancing Robot Spider Teach You A Few Moves You Haven’t Thought of Using Yet
The T8 is a spider robot built with a 3D printer. It is powered by 26 servo motors to show off some of the moves you see in the video. The match calculations it needs to beat Chayanne in a salsa battle, are performed by the Bigfoot Inverse Kinematics Engine developed by Robugtix.
The T8 is wirelessly controlled with a Xbee RF module that lets devices communicate with each other.
