Creator of BB-8 Develops New Hexapod ‘Mantis’ Vehicle (and We Want to Drive One)

We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. Cool Things We Want is an archive of those earthly desires.

(via) This is Mantis, a hexapod vehicle. I don’t like that it’s slow, heavy (4,200 lbs) and runs on diesel fuel, but I still want to give it a go, if only because its maker daddy, Matt Denton, also created Star Wars droid BB-8.
