Taken From BoingBoing:

This steam-powered walking robot has a boiler for its head and an engine in its belly.

oh wow, I love the design for the boiler.  The shape really adds a lot to it.  This is amazing.  It would have been impressive as a sculpture, but the fact that it works...

It reminds me of Laputa, maybe because they are both japanese steampunk. It's an amazing little creature no matter what. I want one!

Why, for the crew to get water for the boiler, of course! 

It is quite incredible, though it is my opinion that Crab Fu's could still take it down...

I find it very [original] war of the worlds martian-esque apart from the crew compartment obviously, such an open cockpit wouldnt provide adequate protection against that nasty common cold!
