@Dylan: Can you imagine if you happened to be out walking in the woods and didn't have any idea about this project and suddenly you saw a giant robot spider walking toward you?

I'd think "Oh no ... not again!" :-)

@kfield: ...this is the first I've seen an engineer working with a toddler in his lap!! Totally cute.

I loved my dad, but he didn;t have an engineering bone in his body. When I saw thsi video with the kid helping build the robot I was thinking "that woudl be totally awesome as a kid to have a dad like that"

I thought it was cute too -- but being a roughty-toughty manly-man engineer I didn't want to be the first one to say so.

I can't wait to see this thing walk, either. But can you imagine if you happened to be out walking in the woods and didn't have any idea about this project and suddenly you saw a giant robot spider walking toward you? Freaky.

@Caleb: My first thought when I saw the picture "Like this, but bigger" was "Shades of the Incredibles" -- I'm sort of tempted to his smaller spider robot ... but then I think "what would I actually do with it?"

I know of some people who work with their dogs in their lap (Hint: he just joined the EETimes staff) but this is the first I've seen an engineer working with a toddler in his lap!! Totally cute.

Yeah, I can't wait to see this thing walk. He actually tried to take a step some time last year and a beam snapped. There's no telling if this thing will stand up to the pressures exerted by its own movement.
