Plustech’s Walking Forest Machine
What looks to be something from a comic book is actually a forest machine. Created by Plustech Oy, this spiderbot is able to distribute its weight over its six “legs” in order to work with more stability and with minimum impact on its terrain. The machine is even able to walk over obstacles and adapt to the forest floor. It is able to walk forward, backward, sideways, diagonally, turn in place, step over obstacles, and adjust the stepping height as well as the clearance height all via a user friendly interface – joysticks. Have your friends bring a few for a live action Mech Assault deathmatch.
