Sometimes… just sometimes, you have to reinvent the wheel, or in this case, the legs. A group of students from the University of Louisiana built this Segway-ish scooter (can it be called that?) with insect-like legs instead of the traditional rolling wheels.

The Cajun Crawler, as it’s called, was inspired by Theo Jansen’s leg mechanism. Watch it go.
