Meet SwagBot: The Four-Wheeled Robot Cowboy

SwagBot is the world’s first robot cowboy, built to roam the rugged Australian terrain.

While it will be doing some cowboy work, make no mistake: SwagBot is less like John Wayne and maybe a little more like a hyper-competent herding dog. It can corral cows and pull trailers, doing the type of work seen in the early parts of Brokeback Mountain. It can go through swamps, up hills, and over rocks. It’s not the first robot to hit the farms of the Australian outback, which are vast, remote and often difficult to access.

A Web-reading bot made millions on the options market. It also ate this guy’s lunch.

Quicker than any human seemingly could have done it, someone—or rather something—bought $110,530 worth of cheap options on Altera, a company that makes digital circuits. Over the next several minutes and until the end of the day, as humans digested Mattioli’s takeover rumor at human speed, Altera’s stock price rose. When all was said and done, those cheap options had resulted in a $2.4 million profit.
