Hoffie’s Automaton · Sun­blog­ger Hoffie is build­ing an au­toma­ton, which is kind of in­ter­est­ing. The de­sign goal is to climb high-voltage tow­er­s, which makes it even more in­ter­est­ing. “Because it’s there” I sup­pose. One can’t help won­der­ing what hap­pens when the au­toma­ton reach­es the high volt­age; just a tasty snack? I hope he’s got his ex­pla­na­tions in or­der for when the anti-terrorism squad won­ders why this geek is send­ing menacing-looking pieces of ma­chin­ery to as­sault the in­fras­truc­ture.
