In 2007, Vancouver's eatArt Lab first unveiled their Mondo Spider, a human run robotic arachnid that weighs 1,700 lbs. Now some of their members have created the 50 ft. long Titanoboa, a robot snake. They put them inside a warehouse next to their studio to see how the two got along. While nothing really happened (even if you thought it was going to,) project leader Charlie Brinson says they are going for art, not killing machines.
That may change when they next release Prothesis, a walking exoskeleton also controlled by a human. It may be too much for the feeble controllers who feel the need to challenge each other in a minor metal duel.
