Interesting fact:
Zach: “I designed 2 large 900 pound robots that clear vegetation in mine fields on an island in Taiwan. The robots are called the Junglebot and the Typhoon 9000. The robots clear all of the vegetation so de-miners (people) from Cambodia and Mozambique can find the mines, dig them up by hand and dispose of them.”
