Grant Imahara's Giant Killer Spider Robot

Read about all Grant's robots here: http://makezine.com/magazine/make-39/imahara/

For the past seven years, Grant has toiled on an oversized personal project that he plans to ride into battle. Or at least to the corner store for some food and beverages. Hear him talk about about this bot, and all the rest he's made, including R2-D2 and the Energizer Bunny.

I have been designing quadrapod robot, and just have a heck of time with the movements, mine like Grant's is 250 lbs. But Grant is far ahead of me in all of this, i am 47yrs old and new to robots, except for the dozens i built out of cardboard boxes and motors in the 80's.

I hope he had a chance to ride on it before he passed away. If not, I hope Adam, Jamie, or any of the Mythbusters do it for him.

I'd like to see a huge red, spinning table saw blade, positioned slightly out of true so it wobbles, on top. In front, 2 large grass shears, turning in a slow circular pattern, with blades loudly opening & closing in a menacing manner. Of course, there should also be some kind of flesh shredding device on rear and an MP3 or such continuously playing a lovely, calming classical music piece to contrast with the mayhem in the front. But, that's just me.

Some people say on the comment section that it's had to make but the only problem i see is the money, you have money you can build something easy. Some people may don't have the experience but (Grow) your own experience trying ;)
