Giant robots terrorize city in Australia

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

That’s right folks, you heard it here first. Except instead of giant think ‘tiny’, and instead of city think ‘scale model town’. The guys over at BP have created an amazing web based demonstration called BP Explorer using the Surveyor SRV-1 kit. Between the hours of 9AM-9PM GMT+10, you can pilot one of five Surveyor robots through a very detailed scale town and offroad area, exploring to find clues to unlock a code which allows for extended playing time. The kicker is that these bots are completely powered by BP solar panels, so everyone can have the pleasure of cruising through this hippy-fueled-utopia without the guilt of burning up our precious fossil fuels!

I’m sure this can’t last forever, so make sure to check it out while it’s active!
