We’ve awarded “Robot of the Week” to all kinds of smart machinery for all sorts of reasons, but never for wreaking havoc on one’s fair city.

Frankly, we’re afraid to award them to anyone/anything else.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
