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.
