So..can it move more than the 5inches that it SLOWLY moved? If it can't run, then it's a POS. Or, if it was self-reliant on it's own computer then i'd be cool instead of remote controlled.

That's hardly an argument, saying most people on here can't build this. Fact is, this isn't anything special as far as robotics are concerned. Dig the soft core porn music though

I was reading that the way it mimics the skeletal system (of a spider) is about 100% dead balls on - And build, sure - Design ??? - Who knows

Awsome. May seem simple but i saw at least 8 servo's there. Sinking that many servo's is not as easy as it looks. I program six axis robots and they come with software that already does alot of the math. Adding more servo's becomes more complex because its not a common product.
