Mr. Roboto Visits Grassroots?
The official story is that engineering students at Cornell University set the record for the longest distance walked by an untethered robot. A robot named Ranger is said to have walked 14.3 miles in 11 hours.
It’s curious that 14.3 miles is close to the distance from Cornell University to the Trumansburg Fairgrounds, where the Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance is taking place this weekend. I’m not saying that I know that Ranger was actually en route to hear Donna the Buffalo, but it would provide some motivation for going the distance.
