Robot Scales Grand Canyon

Evolta RobotOn Saturday, May 24, the 17 centimeter tall Evolta robot scaled a Grand Canyon Cliff.

This was a publicity stunt to prove the Evolta batteries by Panasonic truly are the world’s longest lasting batteries.

Using 2 AA batteries, the robot scaled a 530 meter rope in only 6 hours and 45 minutes. No extra points for being speedy.

Update- video from Reuters here (sound is lousy).
