VIDEO: Japanese machine sucks snow, s***s bricks
Measuring about 5 feet long and two and a half feet tall, Yuki-taro is an automatic, robotic snowplow developed over the last several years by researchers in Niigata, Japan. The cute little snow-sucker uses cameras and GPS to find its way, and, we assume, the bright yellow paint to warn traffic and pedestrians.
Given a few more years, they hope to have commercial models available for under 1 million yen (under $10,000 U.S.) Watch Yuki-taro in action after the jump.
