Fire-breathing Scorpion Looks Cool, Lacks Brains
There's no doubt this is one intimidating robot. It kinda reminds me of those killer spider bots in that old Gene Simmons movie Runaway (yup, I'm giving my age away). The bot has six legs that can be controlled individually and a flamethrower for a tail. An air bag-like mechanism on its belly lets the scorpion hoist itself up. Again, other than scaring kids and squirrels away, there's no point to this robot, but it still looks supercool. Check out the vid post jump.
