Want a cool spider-like robot to wear around and impress your friends? Well, this is the bot for you!

This project was originally going to be an Xpider, from Thingiverse. Then I say Archimedes by Alex Glow. It blew my mind. I wanted one so bad. So, I got to work on own robotic companion. I figured I am not a owl type, and I wanted my familiar to be special. Then I remembered the African story of Anansi the spider, trickster and god of stories. I decided to design the bot with the idea of a story, and thus Asi was born (it’s actually Asi_v4, v1-3 were prototypes).”
