Why are we still talking about cars, anyway? They're yesterday's news. They're a relic of the 20th century. (The 19th century, if you want to get technical.) Today, I have seen the future, and it is robot ostriches from Russia.

Gas 2 has the scoop on this zany creation. With just the equivalent of $1,500 ā€” the cost of a really crappy E30 ā€” four Russian scientists calling themselves "Konstantin Ivanov" built this electric-powered ostrich-bot out of wood. It weighs just under 400 pounds and can also balance on one of its legs. Seriously, what's not to love here?

I want one. I want one now. I'll just have to make sure and mount a dash cam to its robot ostrich head. Because, you know, Russia and everything.

Hat tip to Jo!
