The Spider is just a Brainibot in a commercial toy. It works well and looks cool.
Each antenna is a cocktail stick fixed onto a 6x6mm tactile switch using some sleeve; the switch is the sort with a long plunger. That arrangement of antennae works beautifully but is far too delicate. It only takes a little rough handling to break the switches.
