Spider car

Craft & Design Energy & Sustainability


Stella writes

This guy built a spider-walking vehicle, which may not be as stealth as a real spider, but is still pretty quick on its 8 legs. It took 3 months to design and 6 months to build. After spending $15,000 in materials and countless man hours, the Spider was built in the name of art.

    That is awesome. I love how it clanks with each step.

    Could this be powered by batteries? That would make it rather quieter.
