Walking Robot

Land Walker For about the price of an SUV, you can have your very own battle tech (or perhaps Star Wars) walker.
Japan's Sakakibara Machinery Works has unveiled its version of a sit-in walking robot, dubbed Land Walker 2.
The 3.4m, one-tonne robot walks at 1.5km/h. It is operated by four pedals in the cockpit.
I'm willing to bet that in a few years, the speed will increase.

Very cool. [Hat tip Texican Tattler]
