    He could put rubber tire parts on the feet to improve grip.

    If he has kids, he could also just put the money he spent to build that in an education fund for them.

    Or give me a check or cash.

    It`s extremely cool IMO. Those C&C tanks (I think it was C&C) probably won`t be that far in the future if this spider thingy can be made more practical.

    And it`s just awesome. I want one.

    The legs need large rubber cleat-like pads to move more efficiently. Small, flat metal feet are an awful idea.

    .

    Wey_Pooh:

    That thing replacing tanks? Losing one leg would drat the whole thing up. Even if it was improved so that it could lose a leg, losing any leg other than the opposite one would drat it up completely. It`s moving parts are all exposed and would be impossible to cover with armor and it would take up ~3 the space as one tank for the same internal capacity. Beyond that look at it`s shape: it`s much higher than a tank. Look at any modern tank, they are built with very low profile. Also, tanks are very stable, as they have a very large area of contact with the ground and have a low center of gravity. With only 8 small contact points and a high center of gravity an "battle spider" would be ill suited for carrying anything heavier than a machine gun. Legs will never replace wheels and treads on the battlefield.

    "Through out the intire clip I kept thinking it would suddenly jump really high in the air :P Not sure why."

    That, or an explosion. The turns need some work though... and it doesn`t look smooth...
    That`d be fun though. It looks very difficult to run someone over in it.

    That just declined my fear that much more.

    ...Yeah, for 15,000 bucks and that many hours "wasted", but artisticly well-put...

    ...Yeah, he`s definately a professional time waster.

    BTW, if anyone has ever seen Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex at all, then Tachikomas as well as Fuchikomas might actually be possible to make, now that I`ve seen a close resemblance in action.

    I`ll repeat myself; That was friggin` awesome.
