De-Inventing The Wheel - This ridable mechanical walking machine was
designed by a team of artists and engineers as an industrial metal beast
destined to rock Burning Man and the world of kinetic sculpture. Inspired

call it what you will... We call it... The MONDO SPIDER.
It was originally shown at Burning Man 2006: Hope and Fear.

The Mondo Spider was designed by Leigh Christie, Jonathan Tippett, Charlie
Brinson, Ryan Johnston and a bunch of other peeps from the eatART
Foundation http://eatART.org/ (although the Mondo Spider predates eatART).

The 2010 version of the Mondo Spider is zero-emission electrical,
battery-powered, with batteries recharged using solar panels.
