There’s something about creatures with more than four legs that creeps me out. The more legs, the worse the creepy factor. While spiders sit somewhere in the middle between an ant and a millipede, they can still be pretty terrifying, especially if you’re an arachnophobe. But if you don’t mind having a big metal spider sitting on your desktop, you might want to check out this unusual Bluetooth speaker kit.
This thing looks like some kind of robotic arachnid out of the 1980s Tom Selleck movie Runaway. This spider’s bulbous body is actually a small Bluetooth speaker. To make things better, this spider comes with the warning: “This toy contains sharp metal parts.” It’s made up of 171 individual components, and you need to put them all together yourself. At least they’re kind enough to include all the tools you need in the box. Though I don’t think a can of Raid is part of the deal.
If you like the idea of a creepy spider speaker on your desk, you can grab this guy over on Amazon (affiliate link) for about $47. Just be sure to read the reviews. It sounds like it’s a really challenging build, and like most spider-related things, it’s not for the faint-hearted.
