The Mondo Spider

This is a diesel-powered hydraulic mechanical spider. It weights about 1,600 lb.

De-Inventing The Wheel - This ridable mechanical walking machine was designed by a team of artists and engineers as an industrial metal beast destined to rock Burning Man and the world of kinetic sculpture. Inspired by Vancouver Junkyard Wars, this giant hydraulic monster was hewn from steel with passion and precision. Call it robot... call it biomimicry... call it what you will... We call it... The MONDO SPIDER.

It was originally shown at Burning Man 2006: Hope and Fear.
