    This does not scare me as much as the Japanese Snake-bot, but it's still creepy. Imagine putting a plastic chasis on these fuckers to make them look liek roaches and seeing them crawling up your walls......

    DARPA really does fund some fascinating stuff, I wish we could get mroe video of their projects, but then I suppose that just the nature of Defense Advanced Research Projects.... they're usually all secretive and stuff.

    I'm totally renaming this forum to "Videos and MP3s and Robots".
