Robot vehicle goes up stairs, over bridge of freaks



The fellas at Boing Boing are wondering if anybody knows what this robot vehicle sighted in Japan is exactly. Apparently it can climb curbs and stairs, and navigate crowds, so well that the occupant seemed relatively blasé about his robot howdah. (Though the crowd was not so sanguine and often nearly stopped him by pressing around gawking.) Seen in Tokyo by the Yoyogi park entrance – the ‘bridge of freaks’ according to the report – this past weekend. [GT]
