WELL, THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY, YOU KNOW. Watch Hyundai’s Bizarre Walking Car Concept Crawl Like a Lizard. “The legs, which have articulating hips, knees, and ankles, can be programmed to move in a variety of different ways. It starts off with stuff we’ve seen before—passive and active suspension modes—and then things get wild: In Reptilian walking mode, it moves like a lizard with the legs splayed out to the sides, while in Mammalian walking mode it’s more like a dog, with the legs articulating beneath the car’s body. An Omnidirectional walking mode combines both walking techniques to adapt to different kinds of terrain. The Elevate can also apparently do crazy things—again, theoretically—such as scale a five-foot vertical wall and step over a five-foot gap.”
