Quite possibly the coolest thing I've seen all month, aside from the Nintendo Acapella thing, and Hades' nipples.

I'm very interested to see what other industries this could be used in with other attachments. My first two thoughts are fire/rescue situations, and crowd control.

I seriously need one of those.  I'd be like walking around school just hacking the crap out of all the lockers and water fountians and stuff.

So you can do selective cutting and other minor things without tearing out the top 4 layers of soil everywhere you move.

And really, properly designed, built, reinforced and maintained, who is to say which is easier to break? I know I've personally nearly flipped a teacked bobcat on things that this thing could step over.

Something a few of you missed is that the saw attachment is detatchable. they've probably already go a claw attachment and a few others as well. Personally, I wan't a water canon, or flamethrower, whichever is easier.

That would be the ultimate mudd bogger LOL. But it would be pointless, how fast could one of those go? It would be cool if it could turn to 4 leg mode and run..

I was just replying to your question Bugg. No need for defensiveness.

Clark, I'm assuming you looked at the "futuristic sketches". They really do look like concept designs for the next Terminator movie, don't they? Wierd little things.

You stole my idea! Ah, but great minds think alike...anyway, I think it would be mad cool to see our troops going out in armored versions of this with machine guns-but I wonder how many 19-20 years olds I trust with one of these (not many, probably).
