Stompy: A Giant Two Seat Spider Robot

The Artisans Asylum in Boston Massachusetts s a non-profit community craft studio. In their next robotics class their goals are fairly simple: build a car-sized two-person hexapod robot and ride it. What makes their plans different from the scribbling of every 12 year old who just found Japanese animation is that the guys teaching the class have worked on projects real projects like Boston Dynamics PETMAN, AlphaDog and BigDog.

Hizook does a good job of summarizing what Artisans Asylum is and Stompy.

The project is still in the conceptual stages but the team has a blog with some of the tests and presentations they've done so far.
