Sidewalk Snowplowing Solution

Here's a solution to our sidewalk snow-clearing challenges ... a snow-eating robot that navigates by GPS and video cameras. A roomba for sidewalks.

This bright yellow little machine doesn't just push the snow around, it processes the snow into bricks that can be repurposed for cooling (like that's a pressing need on snowy days).

That's an interesting photo. It looks like the only snow in the picture was put down around the robot for the photo op. The rest of the scene has no snow in sight. I wonder how it does with real snow.
