The future is green with this eco robot

Imagine a world where energy comes from wind power – generated by giant windmills in the sea – and where, on several of these turbines, live small insect-like robots capable of maintaining them.

That future is now, people. Chris Cieslak has invented BladeBUG, a nifty little six-legged robot that will help humans carry out tasks on wind-turbines.

Reading about such advances in technology blows my mind, so I jumped at the chance when Chris offered to tell us all about his amazing invention.
