Well, I suppose that someone was bound to make it sooner or later, but this wooden table can walk.
In case you are wondering, it isn’t a table that can walk on its own through motorized power. If you watch the video, it looks like the walking only works if someone is pushing it. You can watch the video after the jump to see it in motion.
I really don’t think it would have been that much trouble to put a motor on this thing, but I didn’t make it. It was Wouter Scheublin who designed it, and I don’t think I have a right to critique him. After all, I have been trying to make a walking Lego toy for years.
If you haven’t watched the video, then you should check out the spider-like crawls. It reminds me of something from War of the Worlds, and if it could go across the room on its own power, I think that The Sorcerer’s Apprentice would be the proper soundtrack.
I wonder if Mr. Scheubin got the idea from a scene in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace with a scene where a throne is walking on mechanical legs. I wonder how stable this table is. In other words, could you move this table with a drink on it?
It doesn’t look like you can buy one of these, but I’m sure people will want them because it is rather neat. I guess a table with wheels is just not good enough.
