SARASOTA, FL-So you may have heard about a robot named, "Waldo" a Red Tide Algae detector. Its job was to travel around off the southwest coast of FL in the Gulf of Mexico. With some strange malfunction, Waldo was lost at sea. Considering algae research for bio-fuel has been around a while and has recently bloomed with popularity, this loss could have been costly. Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota put out a reward to any boaters that 'Found Waldo'. That's love for a robot if I've ever seen it. Kinda like T-Pain and his vocoder...
This one goes out to all my homies that are trying to make it big in Garage Band... For everyone that loves their robot, check out No Labels, 'I Love My Robot'
Finally after a sizable "Where's Waldo" campaign the researchers found the missing machine themselves. I'm sure they are loving all the publicity flooding in. Glad to give it here. Here's their release on the matter [MCS]
