Robots are cool, so take a look at [Atlin Anderson]’s Spiderbot (video, embedded beneath) which might be made with 3D printed components, pastime servos, and ESP32-CAM module for management and a first-person view. Searching for a brand new challenge? All of the design details are shared online in the event you’d prefer to make a hexapod of your personal.

We like the hassle [Atlin] put into minimizing {hardware} fasteners within the design of the 3D-printed components, and aiming for a modular idea that leaves issues open for enlargement or modification. There’s loads of room within the chassis for extra {hardware}, with a handy peg system for snap-fitting assemblies.

Management is completed wirelessly by way of a cell phone with an app created utilizing the MIT App Inventor, a improbable device that’s nonetheless going robust as a succesful and accessible approach to make an Android app.

As for the ESP32-CAM module that drives all of it, it’s a nice piece of {hardware} with capabilities which might be leveraged very properly right here. We’ve seen different tasks make good use of it as nicely, from this 1/64 scale micro RC car to an oddball tripod camera robot.
