Cute and clever, as usual... I wonder how it is controlled, omniwheel vehicles are not easy to control with a 4 sticks remote... Maybe a NXT + IR-link?

The YouTube video of aeh5040's "Lobster" Lego Technic Mecanum Wheel Car  shows how one can use two Power Functions remotes.  His Lobster Building Instructions show those remotes too:

Agreed, but aeh5040's includes a bunch of differentials to make control easy, something that doesn't exist (as far as I can see) in Isogawa's crab. Controlling each wheel separately is tricky (but then I tend to be all thumbs ;)
