Cool Spiders





Introduction: Cool Spiders

cool spider you can make it with just a electric motor, wires and battery, you can make it turn side way and backward with just a bend on the spider legs.

Step 1: Materals and Tools

MATERIAL: solder wire, coppter wire, electric motor( you can get it from old cell phone) battery

TOOLS: solder, and solder wire.

Step 2: Measure Wires

you need to cut out

1 = 4cm head
1 = 12cm body
6 = 4.5cm front legs
2 = 6.5cm rear legs

2 = 2cm across spider body
1 = 3cm across spider body.

Step 3: Put Together the Wires

place all the wire as show below and solder it.

Step 4: Connect the Electric Motor

solder a 1cm cross the electric motor and connect the wires to + and -

Step 5: Solder the Motor

solder the electric motor to the head of the spider

Step 6: Ready for the Test

connect wires to the battery and place the battery on to the body of the spider and connect the wires to the electric motor, for more info how it works. please watch the video

    its a very good toy

    It uses a vibrating motor right

    How do you make it move?

    This is confusing me... Please provide clearer instructions... But overall this is a great instructable!!

    actually,have u ever felt a vibration on your phone......wel it happens so b'coz of that motor inside the phone.this motor vibrates the-copper wire frame(in the spider's case) and a tooth brush's head in the bristle bot's case.hope u understood.

    I have been thinking about making a bristlebot for quite some time but have not gotten around to it. However I think this just might make me make it now. Great work!

    I like the idea! I was trying to make a modified version yesterday, but instead i ended up burning my self with my soldering iron. so today i took the time to take apart my mom's old cellphone and found the motor. and all i got to do is put it together. hopefully without burning my fingers again.

    you could add a 555 timer chip and a relay so that it goes one way for a wile stops and goes the other way

    I have something like this that I got at the Milwaukee Art Muesuem. It's wind up though-I like the battery better. Great instructable, good pics!

    you can put rings on the back as a battery-holder on the rungs, and use foil for contacts, or the body of the spider by making it two layers and seperate them...

    Yeah. This is cool! But one thing that uses similar parts but is cooler is the bristlebot! Here for instructions.
    Youtube video below is instructions and watching it move:
