Mondo Spider

The Mondo Spider is a 1600 lb, 8 legged walking machine originally built by a Vancouver-based team of artists and engineers in 2006.

In 2009 the Mondo Spider was commissioned by CODE Live as part of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games to switch to electrical energy. This upgrade enabled the Mondo Spider to operate relatively silently, charge from solar power,  and perform indoors with no emissions. In terms of it’s operation, it is the world’s first zero-emission walking vehicle.

The Mondo Spider is a partner project of eatART. For more information please refer to the Mondo Spider project site.
