The Meter Crawler robots look like bewitched measuring tapes -- as though they were pulled straight out of a Hogwart's classroom or something. But it's not magic that makes them move, rather it's all about mechanics.
Created by Keiko Takahashi, his Meter Crawler robots are absolutely adorable. Moving like a snail, the steel measure pulls the body forward. If you want to see them in action, visit Interface for video documentation.
