Crabfu R/C Tortoise'Bot: Lots of Fun

"crabfu tortoise robot hits the ground crawling"

"The guys over at Crabfu Motionworks have been responsible for some weird and wonderful robotic creations over the years, and their latest is no exception.

"The Crabfu R/C Tortoise ‘bot crawls along the ground like a turtle, with a set of 4 sub-micro servos controlling its pokey little legs...."

It looks like a lot of fun, but this is a 'robot' only in a rather wide sense of the word. It doesn't walk by itself: the operator works the legs remotely, using joysticks.

Still, it looks like a lot of fun.

The post has photos, and this YouTube video (3:57):
