Arachnobot the Giant Spider

Category: Show Related artist: Ocho the Giant Octopus

Arachnobot the giant spider puppet is a world first – an impressive walkabout act which roams the streets, festivals and spectacular events looking for prey, or anyone brave enough to say hello!.

This unique puppet combines a giant inflatable skin with a complex cable skeleton which controls eight independently articulated legs. The mechanism enables precise, lifelike movements controlled by a single puppeteer.

Arachnobot is safe and fun for all the family. All ages are both terrified and enchanted by the puppet, which can be interacted with as it navigates the crowds, both indoors and outdoors.

Championed by the Discovery Channel, Fox News, Wired magazine and a YouTube sensation, Arachnobot is now making a firm impact worldwide, with successful tours of the Middle East, America and Europe.
