Not very shiny, but way cool!

WildCat Robot

Here's a news report from Mashable

27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,47,0">

And here's a good video of Wildcat 'running' around. At about 1:18 it stumbles and gets back up

Cool does not need to shine, cool does not sizzle, cool just is. Cool works and delivers.
Solving the many complexities to deliver a “simple” solution is cool.

Thanks for sharing.
