Celeb,

Yes, I had that feel too: Must be quite a sensitive piece of mechanics. But can't wait to get my hands on one ;-)

be very careful never to turn it on while it is sitting on a surface, you can strip the gears in the legs!

T8 for customer enjoyment

Wauw, that T8 looks really cool. I ordered one, just for fun and to take a good play with it. These kind of tools are also a good investment for visiting customers to have a good laugh and chat. That's how technical people get their work: Play a bit, talk about it and then solve the customer his problem. No management for us, like in the big companies (hehe ;-)

Imagine that CNC bot on a bigger scale, able to crawl up cliff faces and carve statues!

Nasa actually had an octopod base for robonaut! You can see it in my article about robonaut here.

Yeah, that spider bot is quite impressive. It is so fragile though, I'm not sure if I'd want to actually own one.

Gotta love the one with mandibles, though.. Also, the CNC robot seems like it could actually be useful.

It is very difficult to choose one among all of those shown as #1-9. Each one of these has its own display of creativity and uniqueness. I have seen videos of T8 earlier on this site and I was amazed about the perfection. But all of Zenta's works have really amazing. The speed, robustness of FantomX, the feature of adjusting the orientation of the legs when flipped impressed me. The amazingly creative beauty of MorpHex, the natural movements of A-bot just like an ant and Matt's creative hexapods are equally impressive. Would NASA send a hexapod/octopod robot next as the Mars rover?  :)

Well my favourite is the Jamie & Adam spider from Hong Kong, but the Atrax is cool too, especially flicking over Teddy
