A little Olympics fun today, as we share this image of workers checking the hydraulic arms of a London bus that has been transformed into a robotic sculpture by Czech artist David Cerny.
The bus, which Cerny hopes could become an unofficial mascot of the London 2012 Olympic Games, does push-ups with the help of an engine powering a pair of robotic arms. The bus’ exertions are accompanied by a recording of sounds evoking tough physical effort.
The bus will be parked outside the Czech Olympic headquarters in London for the duration of the Games. If you happen to see it, send us a photo! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Actually, thinking about it, if you see anything on an engineering and technology tip that you think we might like, send it to us and we’ll whap it up here toot sweet.
More great photos like this – both Olympics themed and our usual engineering and technology specials – can be found every day on the E&T home page.
