Take a Ride on a Creepy Crawly Robotic Skateboard

Take a Ride on a Creepy Crawly Robotic SkateboardWho the hell knows when were getting hoverboards? The Land Crawler eXtreme, a creepy 12-legged personal transport bot, is here now, and its only a matter of time before someone figures out how to kick flip one.Made for his son by the Japanese roboticist Vagabond Works, the Land Crawler eXtreme has six pairs of nightmarishly scurrying legs that can support a 175 pound passenger. The current version moves slowly but steadily, though Im sure well see a faster moving version and corresponding X-Games event in the near future. [Singularity Hub via PopSci]
