Looks like a spider. Moves like a spider.

Aesthetically and behaviorally realistic, the T8X is the only robot in the market that combines so much resemblance to a real spider with fine movements, programmability, and customizability. With 26 servo motors packed inside the robot and powered by the proprietary Bigfoot™ Robotics Engine, which contains advanced robotics algorithms for controlling multi-legged walking robots, there are endless possibilities for the types of bio-inspired, realistic movements that the robot can make.


Incredibly easy for anyone to play with advanced robotics.

By providing simple commands to the robot on your own smartphone, tablet or computer (for example, instructing it to walk forward), the Bigfoot™ Robotics Engine will automatically take care of all the complex mathematical computations in the background, including inverse-kinematics calculations, leg trajectory planning, leg gait coordination, motor control, etc.

So, whether you’re new to robotics and just want to have fun scaring others, or are an expert and want to use it for robotics research, the T8X is an easy and user-friendly way to play or work with some of the coolest and most advanced robotic technologies that exist in the modern world.


Wi-Fi enabled, allowing you to do more, in a better and more convenient way.

The benefits of a touch-based Wi-Fi enabled controller by far outshines that of a physical joystick controller.

The built-in T8X Controller App brings out the best of the Wi-Fi technology because:

  • It’s updateable.
  • It’s programmable & customizable.
  • It has a complete user interface with sub-menus instead of just a few buttons
  • It makes use of a device (smartphone, tablet, laptop) that you already take with you everywhere you go so you don’t have to remember to charge and carry around yet another piece of plastic.


Key Specifications:

  • Wirelessly controlled via Wi-Fi
  • Touch-based web-app interface that works with your own smartphone, tablet device, or personal computer
  • Built-in battery charging system
  • One rechargeable battery pack and power adapter included (additional battery packs can be ordered by selecting from the drop-down menu above)
  • Carrying box included
  • Programmable and customizable
  • Ability to share pre-programmed scripts with others
  • Powered by 26 advanced Robugtix® servo motors


Note: a separate Robugtix Controller is not needed for this product. This product connects with your Wi-Fi enabled smartphone, tablet, or computer via a built-in WebApp.


Fixed shipping cost worldwide via Hong Kong Post. This item is upgradable to FedEx International Economy or FedEx International Priority upon request (additional fees apply).





Two options for the outer shell appearance are available (selectable from the drop-down list above):

1. Black plastic shell

2. Hairy skin version (Limited Edition)

Amazing bot finally becomes reality

Navelpluis on 5th Aug 2015

The waiting was long, but finally I received my T8X today. Could not wait and directly opened the box to have a look. What an amazing bot! Got it running in 5 minutes: The WIFI interface / browser user panel setup is done in 1 minute and there it was: The spider worked. The movements are extremely realistic. I can't wait to scare the hell out of my mom her dog ;-) This bot is going to give lots of fun and lots of impressions to other people and customers. That's certain. Great job, amazing achievements. Thanks to the team@ Robugtix !

amazing little robot!

It was a long wait, but it was well worth it in the end! This thing is so fun! The life-like movements and sleek looks of this little guy are wonderful. The extra space in the main body for customizations, like an on board camera, is a nice bonus too! I can't wait to see what future products Robugtix will develop!
