Panasonic Creates Triathloning Robot

In honor of the Iron Man Triathlon in Hawaii, Panasonic has created a tiny EVolt mascot that will run, swim, and bike the course’s full 142 miles in about a week. The teeny little robot will run on EVolt batteries and, since he’s 10 times smaller than a human, he gets to take much longer to finish the course.

This wee robot is going to swim 2.36 miles, bike 111.8 miles, and then run a full marathon. I suspect the wee fellow will probably have some backup robots to help him if he dies in the middle of the open ocean.
