A Turkish farmer has built a scarecrow that rivals the Terminator in terror. To be honest, this terrifying mannequin was developed to keep bears away from crops. In addition to walking, or actually rolling around, spewing siren sounds, shaking its arms. and flashing its glowing eyes, it can also send 25,000 volts of electricity into an intruder! (Let’s hope that’s with low current, very painful even so.) Channel 9 has the story:
Inventor, Mustafa Karasungur, 46, told the Doğan News Agency his creation can also be used "as a mobile power supply", which is handy if you need to charge your phone between bear attacks.
"It can light a lamp for four hours," the inventor who has been tinkering with electronics over the past 30 years said.
Mr Karasungur's hopes of mass producing the robot may not come to fruition. There are fears the robot could attack and electrocute innocent passers-by because it is unable to tell the difference between animals and humans.
Which makes me believe the reporter in this video needs a substantial raise for going above and beyond the call of duty. -via Geeks Are Sexy
