Robophiliac Chinese farmer invents robotic filial piety in robot form

I love this self-made roboticist's "30 Second Son" robot (named for its mean time between failures). It pulls him around his rural Chinese village in a clanking rickshaw while making funny faces and chanting, "I'm a rickshaw-pulling robot. Wu Yulu is my Dad, I take him out about town.".That's about the perfect robotic application if you ask me. We should send one to Mars. Wu Yulu, the inventor, has lost a house and a wife to his robotphilia (the wife came back),
