LEGO-builder Smitty created this nifty eight-legged robot that measures “5-inches high, 17-inches long, and 9-inches wide.” Videos after the jump.

There’s four legs on each side [and] each side has one gear reduction motor and a rotation sensor to monitor the position of the legs. At the front of the robot there is a bumper that has two touch sensors one on each side of the bumper to determine which side the bumper was hit
