For the past 30 years, a farmer from Beijing has been busy developing a gigantic “family” of robots. Wu Yulu’s home now hosts more than 60 functional robots all with a unique ability. Talk about planning for retirement.
Wu, a self-taught inventor, bid farewell to education right after finishing primary school. How else was he going to build a fleet of 63 operational robots?
China News reports that all of his robots have unique abilities. Some logically navigate the Chinese chess board:
Some excel in fine art:
And some… well who knows what they do?
Each “child” carries the Wu family name, this is followed by an individual first name representing the order of their creation, for example Wu Lao Da (1), Wu Lao Er (2), Wu Lao San (3), and now Wu Lao Liu Shi San (63).
While his workshop may look like a scene from Chucky, there is no denying that these robots, made from random objects, are very innovative. Granted Wu’s children aren’t exactly transformers, they are artistic and useful.
Wu, if you have any to spare and Beijing’s 798 doesn’t want them, will you bring them down to M50, or even yet better our office?
