Phileecs took a Mechamo Gakken Centipede and added a new motor/battery — controlled via a glove. Video after the jump.

I decided to make the motor control PIC based so I could more easily control it with a keyglove which is less practical than a network interface, but is intuitive, requires no computer, and looks science fiction-y. I also happened to have a 1-watt Luxeon LED flashlight, a WRT-54G with hacked client mode firmware, and a network camera laying around so they all got mounted onto the robot
