Scared of insects and arachnids? Then you may not be too fond of this 3D printed robot that resembles a spider, though we think it looks pretty harmless.

The Xpider is a 3D printed robot made by Roboeve, a team of designers based in China, and came out in 2017. This tiny robot is 3.4 inches in diameter and weighs less than half a pound (about 200 grams).

A key feature is the camera mounted to its head, so Xpider scuttles and crawls through difficult to reach places, and then transmits footage back to its operator. The lightweight shell is 3D printed, developed over the course of multiple iterations. Files can be found on GitHub.
