Ride a Russian mechanostrider to work, only $1500
A group of four Russian scientists calling themselves "Konstantin Ivanov" have taken it upon themselves to beat ASIMO, not only that, but it`s rideable too. Working with a budget of only $1500 USD they put this beautifully insane contraption together, weighing in at around 400 lbs and able to balance on one leg this is very cool robot. Shades of WOW?
"In this case, the aforementioned robot ostrich was built by a group of four Russian robot fanatics calling themselves Konstantin Ivanov as a “let’s see if we can” sort of project with a budget of just 1500 USD. The electric vehicle (Ha! It’s relevant!) is made primarily out of wood (Ha! Renewable resource!), weighs just under 400 lbs. and can balance on one leg – perfect for kicking the ever-loving crap out of people who stop in the middle of the sidewalk to text, amirite?"
dare i say it? for anyone who has ever played or is still playing a gnome in World of Warcraft this is your dream come true, you know what i`m talking about
