I Make Projects shows you how to make some electronic critter art –
Years ago when I was in school, I got most of my parts from snipping or desoldering them off of junked curcuitboards, or from taking apart old equipment. One day I took some of the parts and soldered them into what I wished was a functional spider robot – but even though it didn’t work, it was pretty in its own way. It was also fun and inexpensive and fast to make. Since then I have made quite a few, and they never turn out the same.
Here I’ll show how to make a simple spider-robot sculpture. You can put your own twists on it all you like. I’ve even made scorpions as well. The best way to be creative is just to work with what you have!
