That is so freakin awesome. Only thing I would change is add more cameras for 360 degree viewing, but that is a very well built and designed machine.

What did they mean by "on board charging?" I didn't see any solar panels so what's the deal?

But where does it get the electricity from? If it had a charger on board that only need to be plugged into the wall or something, I could understand that. But it sounded like they had a way to charge the batteries while it was plowing.

Will, I've found a new use for your Browning - you'll have to adjust the number of rounds though, since I suspect .50 caliber will produce more heat:

If you ever wondered what a musician/singer/band's group would sound like if they performed their songs in vastly different styles: http://www.youtube.com/user/AndyRehfeldt

CAUTION - Some of the reworked songs may cause fits of uncontrollable laughter.
