Danny Choo has a pretty interesting new friend over in Yokohama, Japan: an enormous robot spider. A spider mech, if you prefer.

La Princess isn't Japanese-made, though; she was built by a French company called La Machine, but in Liverpool, England. They've done a pretty good job with it: from what you can see in the video, it really walks like a spider, but it can minimize the height it brings its legs up to or maximize it, or at least that's how it looks.

I just spent the last, like, half-hour trying to find a picture or a clip or even the right !#@$ing episode number for the Venture Bros. episode that opens with Doc building a spy-der bot, but to no avail. So you'll just have to enjoy the footage of the actual spider robot that is the subject of this article. Sorry!

-BEEP- -BEEP- ROBOSPIDER HAS COME TO EAT YOU!!! Om-nom-nom-nom!

First we had a giant robotic rhinoceros beetle, and now we've got a giant robotic spider... why all the insects lately?

.....awww wait a second, there's a truck holding it up the entire time so it never really uses it's legs?...what's the point then?

I can sense the smile on Dr. Evil face.
