Robot jock attempts a triathlon

Tomotaka Takahashi's tiny, green and white robot has already scaled the Grand Canyon and raced for 24 hours at Le Mans. So why not modify the little bugger to take on a triathlon? Takahashi tells Reuters "'Evolta's height is just one-tenth of a grown man, so we figured out that it would take it 10 times more time,'" so don't expect any records to be broken. DO expect, however, the little bugger to take first place in the tiny robot division. Good luck robot, and don't forget all the nerds who helped you get where you are today.
