This is one of the most elegant robot designs I have ever seen, even if it is a spider! The following post from robots.net details the story about this very interesting robot.
The year is 2058 and you’re bored of your home's drab walls. The emotion is sensed by a strange spider-like robot hiding in the corner. He comes to life and dances across your wall. As you watch, a beautiful rendition of the Mona Lisa begins to appear. He returns as quick as he appeared and you're left with a new view and attitude. This robotic Da Vinci is named xirrou, and brought to you by concept designer Christian Gumpold.
There is a great series of photos at Yanko Design and NachoFoto Gallery.
