Matt Denton and his company, Micromagic Systems, have been working with robots and animatronics in the film and TV world for over a decade now, and he’s been working on hexapods of all sizes for nearly as many years.

This nightmare on six legs will slowly walk towards you, and while it might not have any lasers, phasers or tasers attached, it quite possibly could wow you into incapacitation.
