Phasma Remote-Controlled Robot

Takram Design Engineering built the six-legged Phasma remote-controlled robot that is able to scurry about rapidly and dynamically just like an insect. This engineering marvel aims to mimic a living organism in terms of movement instead of shape, where it will reproduce some physics involved whenever an insect runs. Components used in its make up include sliding cables, stainless steel springs and rubber joints, allowing the designers to replicate the smooth and efficient locomotion seen in insects. It would be interesting to see what kind of practical, real world applications such a robot can offer, although chances are the military will find a destructive means to utilize it in the first place.
