Police Don't Overreact to Strange Object
It's nice to post a positive story once in a while:
Is it a bird? Is it a bomb? No, it's the missing 'bot.
A robot dubbed Seahorse 1, which was stolen days before an international contest, has turned up in a field off Interstate 45 in Dallas.
"Somebody was mowing his grandmother's yard and thought it was a bomb," said Nathan Huntoon, an engineering grad student and member of SMU's robotics team.
The police were delivering the missing machine to SMU Monday afternoon. "We don't know yet if it's in working condition," Mr. Huntoon said.
Sad that this feels like an exception.
