nutjob-on-a-robot I gotta be honest.  This is the least impressive robot I’ve seen come across the wires in a long time, but the picture of the creator riding it like a Clydesdale warhorse completely makes up for that fact.

It’s a simple six legged robot that seems to be capable of walking and carrying moderately heavy loads in one direction – not particularly impressive in terms of what’s possible with today’s robotics.

Gizmodo’s Adam Frucci had a great idea for folks who might be in danger of losing their jobs, though:

These days, you’ve gotta do everything you can to stand out at the office so you don’t get laid off. Like tromp around in a terrifying, six-legged robo-chair.

If I had one of these back in the 90’s, I bet I would’ve fared much better during the great layoff sprees. 

Just sayin’.
