Danger! Danger, Will Rovidorson!

Of all the automated thingies about Personal Rapid Transit that the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist is afraid of, why does he single out robots for special mention?

"By far the silliest thing on the Skytran [PRT] website is the guideway-extruding robot." Source
Turns out, it's a case of self-loathing, because it turns out he IS a robot. It's on Google, so it must be true.

According to this page (scroll to bottom), he's a "small track" agricultural robot that has been displayed at the European Wine Industry Show, as well as other expositions. Among his many features are "WeedSeeker" sensors on his front-mounted boom--which should make the lady robots happy. What a robo-stud!
