Gallery of multileggged misnomerbots

Wired just posted a gallery of multipod robots which is, somewhat embarrassingly, headlined with “Robo Spiders,” in spite of the fact that almost all of them are hexapods. Looks like somebody over there needs a robobiologist to help them distinguish roboinsects from roboarachnids. Still, interesting browsing for the robophilic. Shown above is a rendering of an evil military spy-derbot that UK defense giant BAE Systems will probably never actually build.
