Check out this creepy walking robot which was made using an unlikely material – cardboard. Maker Raz85 decided to build it out of cardboard, rather than 3D print it because “Corrugated cardboard is a stiff, strong, and light-weight material made up of three layers of brown Kraft paper and most of the packing boxes are made from it. So it is very easy to find some.”
Building this robot was still a challenge though since this was his first project of this type. While he calls it a “spider robot,” it only has 4 legs, which he thought would be easier to build. It turned out that this was not the case, and the project was still a challenge.
The end result is pretty cool. I don’t care if it has 8 legs, 6 legs or 4. I don’t care if it’s a robot or a biological terror, all spiders need to be stepped on and set on fire, not necessarily in that order. Depending on your fear level, you may also want to get a tiny sword and decapitate them for good measure, so they don’t come back to life.
