  1. Looks like a pretty pointless creation to me. Moves too slow, center is highly exposed and doesn’t seem to serve much of a purpose other than looking like a giant metallic insect. Maybe if this thing had a normal operation on tank tracks and used the legs for careful climbing, you might have something. The way it is now, useless. If they decided to weaponize this thing, I’d have to laugh at it.

  2. the thing this will lead to is the walking urban defense vehicles. outside of deep dessert, walking vehicles will be all terrain, as design power amplification are improved the legs will become fast as more agile. if you want reference points check out this sci fi prophecies ghost in the shell

  3. What a useless piece of scrap metal. I think storm droids have more use than this thing. Take out a leg or two and that thing will be even more useless scrap metal. Am I supposed to be scared?
