    Link: 6 Ton Mechanical Spider Built by Martin Montesano - This mechanical spider measures 23-feet long and weighs in at a whopping 6-tons. It`s also freaking awesome.

    It has potential but it`s not very impressive because it doesn`t do very much.

    It doesn`t have much mobility... But it does look awesome. The mechanics probably wouldn`t be that difficult to replicate.

    Probably was designed to use only a minimal amount of energy to propel, not necessarily designed for speed (as you can tell). Personally, I wouldn`t pay a penny for a robot that doesn`t have working lasers.

    It only moves in one direction. I want one that can scurry around all over the place reeking havoc and destruction throughout all the land.

    what an idiot, the idea of making a vehicle with legs is about adding flexibility in its movement, that thing can only go straight on a flat road

    ^^ spiderman`s let himself go
    *tries to swing on a web*
    *web snaps*
    *plummets to death*
    anyway, give it some webbing or guns/lasers/cannons and rotating leg THEN it wouldn`t be worthless

    i just wondered if it would be possible to add
    wheels to that big monster i thought about it myself the tires would have to be huge just to
    carry that thing around would this machine be used in outer space on other planets if so then wheels would be the answer and where would you put cargo?
