walk/drive a dog/motorcycle

robo-dog1

This hulking monster was created by the Mutoid Waste Company because, well, why not? Part dog, part motorcycle it walks/drives and breathes fire. Constructed from all salvaged parts, this thing is a testament to recycling. Either that or it is the harbinger of the robot apocalypse. Regardless of the possibility of it enslaving all mankind, we want one. Be sure to watch the video.

    This is MAXIMALLY cool! Does it also allow any kind of autonomous functionality?

    Next they should add a home-made nuclear reactor, lazer beam eye cannons, jump jets and a microwave oven.

    Murah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Oh, pooch: “Veoh is no longer available in SLOVENIA.”

    .. what did we do? Came 2 digits close to 15 digits internet lockdown code? *duh*

  3. captain says:

    oh yeah.

    skynet has awakened.

    blah blah blah

    we need john conner “leader of the resistance”

    oh, his mom and his android girlfriend, cameron are hot too.

    I would hope everyone can agree that’s hacking. :)

    The foundation of this group is intriguing. They eventually met there demise through top dollar’s “became an institution” logic. There work is impressive too.

    it reminds me of something you’d see the humans using in the matrix or half life 2. all it needs now are some random weapons and electricity arcing back and forth inside the frame.

    “veoh is no longer available in lithuania.”

    now i have to go find a proxy..

    Ive seen this in the flesh! Well steel, once agian this was at Glastonbury earlier this year.

    This is nothing compared to some of there other creations, also it looks great but is very limited in its limb construction, a bit of a waddler rather than a walker!! the pyro is awsome though!

    This is a wonderfull assortment of interesting mechanical bits and pieces scrounged from all sorts of machines.

    Czech Republic too…
    There’s a flash video over here:

    And couple on YouTube too.

    BTW, wonderful machine.

    if version 2 can get up to highway speeds, count me in!

  12. Matt says:

    Sans rider and a little smaller, I almost see the hounds from Fahrenheit 451.

  13. draeath says:

    @jamezd & @glow

    Once again proving that trying to censor the internet is futile… not to mention all the innocent stuff that gets blocked (such as this).

  14. bountyx says:

    @draeath

    They obviously censored veoh once they saw this mechanical beast was real. hahahahaha resistance is futile.

  15. gabe says:

    sad that this picture is as acurate about the movement as the real thing.

    really, just stare at the pic and imagine time tediously passing by with nothing moving at all. that’s how the real thing feels :(

  16. Alan says:

    I love the fact that no new parts were needed to build it. Anyone can make cool stuff with a big budget but for this thing to be made out of junk that’s something else!

  17. enickel says:

    “veoh is no longer available in Brazil.”

    Please dont use Veoh links…

  18. NiñoScript says:

    “Veoh is no longer available in CHILE”
    Why?! Oh god, why?! :'(

    btw, thanks for the other links in comments ;-)

  19. anthony says:

    that thing is painfully slow and ungainly. can it come in his and hers sets?

  20. Iver Olsen says:

    Awesome. It still surprises me what people can build doing recyckling.

  21. Want insurance on that? What a crazy awesome looking creation.

  22. WOW I was about to ask if there is a video. This is a super cool toy! Never in my life have i seen anything cooler. I wonder if I could teach it to do the same stuff my dog does, play dead, count to 4 etc. WOW.
