Panasonic robot climbs Grand Canyon cliff

In order to showcase the power of their recently introduced Evolta batteries, Panasonic let a small robot climb up a 500 meter-cliff at Grand Canyon on Saturday. The Atomboy look-a-like weighs 134 grams and is 17 cm tall.

It took the robot precisely 6 hours and 46 minutes to pull off the PR stunt. The little guy was powered by just 2 Panasonic Evolta AA cells while hoisting himself up a rope.
