The clever people in General Electric have built a robot that climbs and inspects wind turbines! The full details are in Go Go Gadget: Robotic Crawler Rides Up 300-Foot Poles to Inspect Wind Turbine Blades, and I will include a photo here rather than trying to explain it!

It looks really cool, and I am very impressed with its suction capabilities!

There are many other interesting stories reported in GE Reports.
