Terrifying robot SPIDER can roll up into a ball and somersault towards you

•, By Shivali Best

If you're not a fan of spiders , you may want to look away now.

Scientists from Festo have designed a robotic spider that can walk or roll up into a ball and somersault.

The robot, dubbed BionicWheelBot, is inspired by the flic-flac spider - a species discovered in the Erg Chebbi desert on the edge of the Sahara in 2008.

The flic-flac spider can walk like other spiders, but can also also propel itself into the air, with a combined sequence of somersaulting and rolling on the ground.
