7,000 rounds per minute is insane. At over 100 rounds per second, to have the tracers showing up pretty much as a constant stream you'd have to space them ever 20 or 40 rounds or so.

One step closer to Metal Gear...

That robot's freaking sweet, too. I love how the design has sincere roots in nature, mimicking the jumping spider. If ever there was a cute bug, the jumping spider would be it. A fitting emulation, too, as this little hexapodal bot is a cutie and a half.
