If you have seen the Tachikoma mecha robot that was made for Ghost in the Shell, you will notice that Igaa-san's robot is pretty similar.
The robot is unnamed and still needs some cosmetic work, though, he's planning on giving it a face lift sometime in the future. It's also relatively small, about the size of those RC cars you find at toy stores.
The movement, which I think is a lot like a spider, comes from its four legs that all have wheels attached to them for feet. Watch the video below and see what only a couple of days of motion programming can do. It's neat!
Now, it's nothing spectacular or groundbreaking, but, I have to say, I find it rather amusing. What do you think?
