looks like they are attached to a rotating shaft, and they can't have too much traction or else they can't turn

Yep they're levers being worked from a spinning shaft, you can see it clearly in the side view.

Hydraulics or pneumatics with all those legs would be hell :P

Nifty lil thing, definitely get you attention if you took it down the street :)

I don't think it really is any better than wheels though because the legs don't conform to rougher terrain.
