Watch out arachnophobes, Tim Davies created this awesome air-filled spider puppet and it looks feisty!

Spider is a current research and development project which began in August ‘10. The 5m high inflatable spider is a fully articulated puppet controlled by a single puppeteer. The spider’s 8 legs each have 4 separate articulations allowing the spider to curl into a ball, walk, leap and attack with a similar leg speed to a real spider.
