A gigantic robot spider 50 feet high and weighing in at 37 tons has been sighted in Liverpool, UK. The spider, which marks Liverpool's "European Capital of Culture" celebration, was first spotted hanging off a building before it wandered off around the city. The gigantic piece of robot art was made from wood and steel by French theatrical engineers. It uses 50 hydraulic axes to move along, spewing water, wind, smoke, flames, and even snow in the process.
