Let's Make Robots!

Spider Tank

In a nutshell, I think this thing would make a great toy.  As I've learned, most tyo companies aren't interested in taking on unusual or actually original ideas.  I guess it doesn't easily fit into their marketting system.  So, I'm throwing it out here on the off chance anyone has any ideas or knows any one or actually is anyone who'd be interested in manufacturing these.

Its made of easy to make molded plastic pieces, and only uses 2 motors.  ...should be cheap to make.

Thanks for looking!

I am Claudia from DAGU Hi-Tech Electronic Co.,Ltd in China


Oddbot has mentioned this to us and we are very interested in it.

But he is right, we have a few projects on the go at the moment and we will make decision in one to three weeks.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.  :-)


im sure he would like that! :D
Great work Jaimie  - you have a site with more info?

I know I ain't Jaimie, but I know his website : http://jamius.com/

And there are a motherload of videos on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/JMEMantzel

Wow, that thing is awesome and for the first time, something that in a way creeped me out as to how well it moved....LOVE IT!!

China is two hours behind me so when they log on I will mention this to them and give them your email address. I think they will be interested but don't expect it to hit the shelves of the toy shops a few months later.

DAGU are interested in educational robots for highschool and Uni students so your robot will probably be sold online and by Arexx in Europe. They have a few projects on the go at the moment with two of my robots plus Frits's YDM so be patient.
