A Remote Controlled Rock Crawler? :-)

Some imaginative folks at the Art Institute of California are whipping up a sweet remote controlled rig that is destined to take on the DARPA offroad challenge in just a few weeks. It’s called the Robomonster.

There’s a short video of someone “driving” it around a small parking lot over big tires and the like. It’s fun driving yourself over big rocks and through mudpits, but this would be a great way to not wreck your daily driver.
