The Phasma hexapedal running robot is something that I do no want to see scampering down my hallway at night. That being said, it’s an engineering marvel. Built by┬áTakram Design Engineering, it uses its springy six legs to scuttle about just like an insect. It’s currently on display at the Science Museum in Tokyo, but you can check it out in motion watching the video below.
