The Lego PF/NXT OMNI-SPIDER omnidirectional 8-legged robot that imitates a Spider with an excellent degree of accuracy. This is a preview of the prototype, built by Menno Gorter. You can easily imagine that Menno’s final version will be absolutely BRILLIANT! As the name suggest, his PF/NXT OMNI-Spider is capable of walking in any direction. It appears he has achieved this by pairing two legs to a single Lego Power Functions XL-Motor.
