SpiderBot by Stephen Hurton & Paul Phamduy
Controlled by a Super Cricket, SpiderBot has its hook hung over a clamp and walks off the edge of a table. It lowers itself down to the floor via an unwinding spool of string attached to the hook. An IR sensor detects the floor and SpiderBot climbs back up by reeling in the string. The six-legged locomotion is controlled by two DC motors and the winding spool by a gear-box motor.
