    It`s a great job, but I don`t recall servo motors in a television set. Nor do I recall anything resembling those feet.

    Brilliant kid. My God, I shiver to think how much effort must have gone into simply finding the equipment to make that, let alone build it.

    this guy is an example for his countrymen and for the world.
    often we speak of Africa as a lost continent, but the people are not lost.
    we should give opportunities for them, so that they can show what they are really capable of.

    It reminds me of those plastic toys that you can wind up that wobble across the table. Yes, I`m cynical, but I am wholly not impressed with this.
