[Wu Yulu] is a Chinese farmer with no formal mechanical training. He’s been building various contraptions over the years and even accidentally burned down his house at one point. Pictured above is a walking, talking rickshaw pulling robot he built to haul himself around town. You can see a video of the mechanical man on Reuters.
The design reminds us of [Bob Schneeveis]‘ Schwarzenegger towed solar chariot we saw at Maker Faire.
