Wheels? Too convenient! Try tiny motorised legs instead

Transport, Weirdness


If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably wanted a Segway ever since enjoying the wonderful performances of Will Arnett as Gob Bluth in Arrested Development. What you probably hadn’t considered for a second was replacing the tried and tested wheel element with a load of tiny motorised legs. If you had, then I’m sorry: you’ve been beaten to the punch. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the Cajun Crawler:

The most surprising thing about that video to me (other than, y’know, that it’s a Segway with legs) is the relative speediness of the thing. I mean, you might not want to use it if you’re the getaway driver for a bank heist, but if you just wanted to look cool weird on the high street, then I daresay it’s the best non-wheel based mode of land transportation I’ve seen this year.
