“After four years intensive R&D, inspiration, design and build, Micromagic Systems is proud to unveil Mantis — the biggest, all-terrain operational hexapod robot in the world.”

I still like it.

Being Canadian, I of course want to see if it can handle snow at all.

Interesting!

This just looks like it should not be possible, but here it is.

Wow!

Making the rounds. Kind of astonishing.

Have a happy Friday and a fantastic weekend.

See you next week.
