The Walking Pod, by Scott Parenteau

The mighty 12-legged walking machine weighs 1800 pounds.­ Requiring only 800 watts of power to run with a top speed 0.­2 miles per hour, the mutant vehicle is powered by two 12 volt batteries hooked up to an inverter, two speed controllers and two washing machine electric motors.­
