The humongous mechanical spider which weighs 37 tons and stands 50 feet high, is dangling from a 15 story building in Liverpool. The contraption was built by Le Machines whose creative force is François Delarozière. The gigantic mechanical arachnoid, which was built at a cost of cost £2m ($3,511,600.01), will be taken down the building on Thursday (today) and exhibited thorough out the city.
In addition to hanging from buildings and freaking the living shit out of people, what does this thing do? If anybody knows let me know please.
