For the concept Jamie has created a fictional, yet compelling
back story which explains how and why the droid came about,
and perhaps more interestingly, what happened after it
hit the streets. Here's the storyline:
The CRAB, short for Cybernetic Autonomous Remote Barricade,
is a product of Dalton/Stanley - a fictional weapons and
armaments company who specialize in cutting edge products,
and Omni Consumer Products - a giant (and probably evil)
Developed in secret over many years, the C.R.A.B. was
designed to revolutionize policing, starting with the
streets of London. Although later models were to be designed
with the military in mind. Its six independent legs meant
it could traverse almost any terrain easily and quickly.
The CRAB featured all the latest technology of the future,
including advanced armor and armaments, gas and smoke
screen capabilities, and it's artificial intelligence
was supposed to distinguish between friend and foe...
Unfortunately it malfunctioned on its first ever public
outing. You can see the robot having a meltdown in the
outstanding 'rampage' animation created by the designer.
