Another walking robot today! This one walks on 24 pneumatically-powered legs made from oxygen tubing, by Monica Anderson. [via BoingBoing]

  1. Yep, I agree. Very cool and interesting. Makes a great noise! The video was good too showing a lot of detail and something of the design process. Nice it shows the errors too! I wonder if you could scale that up to something massive (and lumbering). Air bags can lift huge amounts of weight so something scaled up should be able to carry a massive load (in an impractical manner).
