Smash Hit

Row, Row, Row Your Bot

If at first you don't succeed, try, try a brain. A small Hitachi robot may be designed to run office errands, but it ran straight into office furniture during a media demonstration in Japan. Researchers blamed the mishap on jammed wireless network traffic at the company's research centre. The robot later smoothly cleared any obstacles.

FOOTNOTE: R2 detour.
