The enormous machine is what's know as a 'bucket wheel excavator'. Typically used for strip-mining coal. Possibly even this on -> http://www.eugen2002.de/hambach.htm

The article on large numbers has a link to a fun article on Googleplex: http://www.fpx.de/fp/Fun/Googolplex/

It's been around since 1995. Worth reading if you haven't seen it before.

There is something similar to the nBot that was made with Lego. http://www.geocities.com/stevehassenplug/LegWay.html

Some other guy also made a human size segway imitation (not using Lego), but I don't remember the url.
