Straight out of a sci-fi thriller, this incredible mechanized spider (designed by a group of artists and technicians) walks the streets of Yokohama, Japan carrying it’s victims.Ã‚ The creative group, La Machine is known for creating such mechanized performing creatures.
The giant robotic spiders (Yes, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a couple), have been Ã¢â‚¬ËœengineeredÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ by the French performance art group La Machine. The spiders are far away from the shores of France as they prepare to be the attractions of Expo Y150, a 5-month festival in Yokohama.
The event is still a few days away but the two 12-meter (40-ft) tall, 37-ton arachnids are already drawing the crowds. They are fully mobile and as the video shows, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s shooting steam and water from its mouth and rear end. Water cannons, fog machines, lights and live music complete the Hollywood style FX effect. The effect deepens as the day turns into night.
