Pneumatically Powered Robot Walks On 24 Oxygen-Tubing Legs

What has 24 legs and walks with the power of oxygen? This robot here. It’s a pneumatically powered walking robot with legs made of hospital oxygen tubing. It was built in 2005 and was controlled by a Mac Mini. The project took about 5 weekends and nabbed two first prizes (for best demo and best presentation) at Hackers’ Conference the same year. We just love to watch it walk, with the accompanying whirring sounds.
