Look At This Insane 2-Ton Insect-Robot

• http://www.popsci.com, By Colin Lecher
 Meet the Mantis Walking Machine. Designed by Matt Denton and his team at Micromagic Systems, it's a 2-ton, 9-foot-tall, 50-horsepower hexapod (six-appendaged) robot drivable through a cockpit or via wi-fi.

And look at this robot! Look at it march through grassy fields! Look at it move stuff! What could this majestic insect-robot possibly be used for? Well, whatever the customer wants, actually: it's available for hire. (If a super villain gets a hold of it, at least it only moves at 1 kilometer per hour.)

Last year, we saw a hexapod robot get funded on Kickstarter, and we've seen some smaller hexapod-'bots. Hmm.
