...for all your de-forestation needs...

Actually, could be used in many practical situations besides that. The web site has some more pics and videos...the future's coming...

That's VERY cool! But if I was out in the wood alone and saw that coming down the hill, it would scare the shit out of me until I figured out what it was.



I'd half expect some Imperial Stormtroopers to come piling out of it, blasting away.

It could definitely go to some places where wheel-based vehicles couldn't, that's for sure.

Wow! cool looking machine. But bad news for trees.
Did anyone watch the video of it moving through the forest. Very fluid & complicated movement sequence for the feet. Does anyone know the name of this movement pattern?

Forget atv's this is the next off road vehicle.
