Technology has neaver ceased its march forward. Welcome the Bionic Wheel Bot spider.

Professor Ingo Rechenberg a bionics processor at the TU Berlin, discovered the flic-flac spider or cebrennus rechenberg. Movement is always a problem with biological models and the BionicWheelBot is no different. Researchers have created two separate modes of movement. One for even ground and the other for uneven ground The bot employs arachnid like walking on uneven ground while switching into wheel mode for even ground to achieve top speed.

Professor Rechenbern and other researchers are transferring its movement technologies to the technical field to be adapted to other technologies likely military use.

In walking mode the artificial spider can handle uneven ground and overcome inclines of up to five percent uphill.
