Mr. Woo, the Chinese Robot Farmer Guy, Hits Hard TimesJack Loftus11/30/08 10:00amFiled to: Robotsmr. wooInventionsChinaRickshaws23EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkNot even wacky Chinese farmers are immune to the unstable economic climate, it seems, as our old friend Mr. Woo was recently forced to sell off some of his robot creations to make some extra scratch. This news is especially sad when we consider the fact that Woo, who has built 26 robots over the past 30 years, considers each of them his sons. "They are all my sons, so they must bear my surname," he said. There was no word on which of his sons went on the auction block, so we hope it is not Wu No. 25 (pictured), the son Wu loves best.
