A new Sky.com article profiles Wu Yulu, a farmer in rural China who builds robots from scrap found at rubbish dumps. He has built 6 robots ranging from small biomemetic bots to big multi-legged walkers. Like many robot inventors, he has been burned by exploding batteries, fallen into debt, and had a short-circuiting robot burn down his house. The article quotes his wife as saying, "at least he doesn't drink or chase other women". More on Wu Yulu's robots can be found in a China Pictorials article from earlier this year.
