Somebody went and stole a robot! Can you believe it? That's just wrong! I am outraged.
The Washington County (Oregon) Sheriff's Office said physics professor Erik Sanchez reported the theft Monday.
He said he felt sick Sunday and mistakenly left his sport utility vehicle unlocked overnight with the robot inside outside his home in the 6000 block of S.W. 205th Ave. in Aloha.
The robot is 29 inches long, 19 inches high and about 23 inches wide. It is valued at $5,000 and was donated to Sanchez by the manufacturer, Parallax Incorporated, for use as a teaching tool in one of his classes. The robot is called the "Propeller Quadrover," and it is strong enough to pull a pickup truck.
What in the hell is the matter with people? Who steals a physics professor's robot? Hey, why are you looking at me like that? No, you can't take a look around my garage. WAIT, STOP! Uh, uh-oh -- I've never seen that thing before in my life!
Search is on for valuable missing robot [katu]
Thanks to Nolan, who straight up accused me of stealing that bitch.

I have no idea what some of you tipsters' obsession is with guys getting their junk stuck in things, but it's borderline disturbing (just kidding, it's totally rad). But here goes: Xing, a 41-year old man, was wandering through LanTian park in Hong Kong late one night when he ... / Continue →
This is a video of X2 (who looks suspiciously like the illegitimate buttchild of Johnny 5 and WALL-E), an AUTONOMOUS robot built from a LEGO Mindstorms NXT set that can climb and descend stairs on it's own. We aren't even safe upstairs anymore! Do I have your attention now? ... / Continue →
