Hexapod spider robot: somehow less creepy than a real spider

Spiders are creepy, sure. But somehow, a robotic spider, which seems like it should be far more unsettling, manages to be more awesome than scary.

This particular spider robot was made by Japanese robotics company Konod, and it features six legs that can move independently. What would you do with a robotic spider? I'm not so sure, but hey, it exists! They've done their part, now I suppose it's up to us to find a use for it. Any ideas?
