The neural network-powered spider robot that fits in the palm of your hand.

Similar projects worth following
Xpider is the smallest programmable spider robot in the world. It's a neural network-powered spider robot that fits in the palm of your hand. It measures only 3.4-inch in diameter and weights only 5.3 oz. You can easily place it on your desk and play with it anytime you want.

Camera Integrated, you can see the world in different perspective.
Programmable, it can be program with easy to perform all sort of robotic tasks.
Navigate with AR, point and click at object on screen and see Xpider navigate to it automatically.
3D printable, you can easily modify and to create your own version by printing a different 3D model!
Neural network support, it can also be trained thanks to the powerful Intel Curie neural network inside it.

How to Play with Xpider?

See the world in different perspective

The integrated camera gives an entirely different view of the world. You see what Xpider see on your smartphone or tablet. Xpider can be controlled from the phone and give you an adventure of the familiar space in entirely different view.

Navigate Xpider with AR

We developed a surface approximate navigation system to make it easy to navigate Xpider around. Combine with AR; it surely makes moving Xpider around a lot of fun! Check out the demo video here.

3D Printable

We open sourced all the 3D models of Xpider. And we encourage everyone to modify 3D models to make your special Xpider for your own. Do you want a square head version? Ok, no problem, Let's make it!

Super Easy to Program

Xpider is so easy to program that EVERYONE can do it! Thanks to SmartNode that you can easily program Xpider from computer or iPad by simply drag and drop. Check out the video to see how easy it is to get Xpider to do what you want! We integrated Xpider control command into the Smartnode. Just drag and drop, you can custom the action of Xpider, for example, walk, turn, even if human face detection.

Train instead of Program (Curie version Only)

Powered by the neural network inside Intel Curie module, Xpider can not only be programmed but also it can be trained. Add distance sensors and a remote control; you show Xpider how to act, and its neural network learns! How COOL is this!?!

Customizable

There are quite a few ways to customize your Xpider. The case of the Xpider was white and you can paint it easily with model paints. You can also design new accessories and 3D print them to be attached So many ways to customize Xpider, imagination is the limit!


100% completed in this week

Thanks for supporting Roboeve. This moment is exciting. Xpider is moving on! Now our campaign has been completed by 100% . Your support has been valuable to us. Please continue to support us to achieve the goal by pledging, sharing the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In this time, we have been working hard to turn ideas into reality. Thank you in this transfer between the energy of you, your suggestions and your support is our greatest motivation, thank you!!!

    Xpider Labor of Love

    Nine months of hardwork and we finally have a Xpider we are proud to bring to the world! Here is our journey to create Xpider.


    Sketching like crazy!

    Getting the right look of Xpider is very important to us! Not olny we want a programmable robot for everyday use, we also want it to look great on our desk like an top anime GK (Garage Kit)! We went throught hunderds of sketchs on our notebooks and a dozen times of 3D modeling!


    Modeling and 3D Printing

    We are so happy to have 3D printers. We want Xpider to walk with style! We have gone through dozens of mechanical designs and print out hundreds of pieces to make sure Xpider walks smoothly and with great style.


    Solid Works

    We built dozens iterations of functional spider robots with 3D modeling, part printing and circuits building.


    Drag and Drop programming with SmartNode

    Xpider should be easy to program! Max spent a lot of time integrating Xpider and SmartNode to make sure Xpider is not only programmable but also easy and fun to program for everyone!

Cool but Intel Edison?

  Are you sure? yes | no

this looks amazing! Though, the image does look a bit choppy. Have you given any thought about image stabilization using the gyro?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Xpider wrote 07/12/2017 at 08:16 point

Yes, maybe is a good suggestion!

But now it is very stable, if you are interested, you can pay attention to our websitehttp://www.xpider.me or Facebook Web. https://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn  you can learn more about the Xpider.

  Are you sure? yes | no

working prototype for more then a year , 104% funded since November 2016 , shipping  5 months late and counting  , 

  Are you sure? yes | no

Our engineers are doing the final test and circuit debugging work to ensure that each of you get the hands of the Xpider are safe and correct, we do our best to do it the best, like a complete presentation to your front, because These first batch of Xpider are our engineers themselves in tune, so it will be a bit slow, I hope you can understand.

I am really sorry, I also know that we have delayed the delivery time delay for a long time, but we are really treated every Xpider, treat each of you, hope You can understand our intentions, thank you!

  Are you sure? yes | no
