Spider robots: commuter vehicle of the future?

You know, you'd think that ridable spider robots would be one-of-a-kind, yet here we are with our second ridable spider robot in just one month. Sure, the first one might look a bit more tough and intimidating than today's, but that's not what its all about.

This decidedly more serene model was developed at the Chiba Institute of Technology. Why? I'm not quite sure, really, but that doesn't keep it from being awesome. Seriously, when are people going to realize that cars are just so 20th century. Ridable spider robots, they're the vehicles of the future.
