Rural Chinese Man Invents Robot
I located this great piece about a Chinese robot inventor who is destroying his rural family with his obsession for creating robots. Heres a bit: "On the outskirts of Beijing, in a small village of red-bricked farms flanked by rows of fields, lives an unlikely inventor. Wu Yulu, a 41-year-old repairman, builds robots of his own designs, using nothing but scrap and a fifth-grade education. He spends more than two-thirds of his monthly 1,000-rmb salary on an obsession that keeps him up at night and has plunged his family into debt." More Here!
