"As I huddle in what remains of my Escondido Village apartment, my mind struggles to free itself of the terrors of the past couple hours. Though the fires have died down, my roommate's body has still not been recovered. At least I have wireless internet. Where to begin my story?" So begins the eBay auction description for John Shedletsky's robot, which was constructed for his Stanford ME210: Introduction to Mechatronics class. The ad is complete with photos of the devastation caused by the killer robot and warnings that, if turned on, it may try to enslave humanity. But the big question about this auction, according to Gordon McComb: are the lavendar panties included? If you need a killer robot to help with your plans for world domination, get your bids in now. Remember, "You are bidding on the very best, most psychotic killer robot ever devised by man."
