Kickstart Armed Spider Robots


We find some of the most fascinating projects on Kickstarter. This time it is the Trisolate Society's 3 ft. tall, Armed Spider Robots designed for fighting. Think of it as a cross between laser tag and nerf. An open source program allows them to track, target and attack each other, or you, and when hit, temporarily becomes disabled.

We dig the idea but so far there is no evidence of the project beyond the funding plea (including this clip art.) Development of said program is open to others and if you pledge $3,000, you can get one of your own. If that is too pricey, donate what you can by the end of March.
