Recently here in the UK we were hit by a couple of days of bad snow (so of course the country ground to a halt)… If only we’d had some of these babies:
The Yuki-taro Robotic Snow Plow!
Yuki-taro has a GPS system and video cameras in the ‘eyes’, to guide itself around. Snow is ‘eaten’ into the mouth area, the snow is compressed into hard blocks, which Yuki-taro then… erm… excretes out of the back. ;)
Not only does it clear your drive, it makes you ice cubes! Awesomeness! How i love those kooky Japanese designers! :D
