Antarctic Research Robot

April 7, 2006

antarcticbot.jpg US scientists and engineers have built a solar-powered robot that should be able to handle the cold Antarctic climate. The one-cubic meter robot has the ability to drive hundreds of kilometers and perform scientific experiments without the aid of human or satellite interaction. The robot weighs around 130lbs, and it can carry a "delicate payload" of around 155lbs. Putting two and two together, it's obvious that the scientists are going to use this for some sort of Antarctic stripper transport, allowing the stripper to burst out of the robot like so many cardboard birthday cakes. With a fleet of five of these robots planned, Antarctica will finally reach the number one spot on the list of sexiest destinations for bachelor parties and spring break vacations.
