Tick killing robot.

Engineers at the Virginia Military Institute have constructed a robot that's purpose is to navigate a yard while collecting and killing any ticks it finds. It uses a denim skirt (that the ticks naturally cling to) soaked in tick killing pesticide. This is an interesting idea, but personally I am not that impressed with it. Basically it just drives around the yard for hours hoping to run into a tick with its denim skirt.

It' creative, but I think there is probably a better way.
