Giant Mechanical Spider on the Move in Liverpool

Giant Mechanical Spider Spotted in Liverpool
Obviously, I've been busy if I missed this on the web a few days ago. Check out this giant mechanical spider that crept down the streets of Liverpool, England. I don't have an adjective in my vocabulary to describe how amazing this is as an artistic and technical accomplishment.

Here is a link to a flickr set of photos that captured the event.

I've just posted a giant spider of Liverpool video on youtube. It’s got great footage including the spider speeded up as it ascends a building and is well edited:

I've also got a three part documentary about the Royal de Luxe giant elephant and little girl which shows a lot of the operators and mechanics up close.

Dear Giselle,

Wonderful footage! I'm going to feature it in a post of its own on The Automata / Automaton Blog.
