While DARPA held a grand event featuring Hummers, a chopped TerraMax and a Touareg, among other manly devices, the European Elrob event, held outside Frankfurt, seems like it was a milder affair. Excluded from the DARPA Grand Challenge because of their Euroness, inventors from across the continent showed up with such masculine warfighting machines such as a hopping mini-helicopter and a robotic Smart. If there's a war on, we'll take the TerraMax, thank you.
