SlugBot: A Slug Hunting Robot

Posted 16 Sep 2001 at 15:08 UTC by steve Share This

Dr. Ian Kelly's slug hunting robot, SlugBot, has made the news again. This time the BBC has an article on SlugBot. The article notes, among other things, that Slugs were chosen because they're one of the few animals you don't need a license to hunt in England. Work is still progressing on powering the robots by having them "digest" the pests as they are removed from crop areas.
