Here's a robot video that I found interesting:
The Emergency Antenna Platform System is a robotic solution to the need to elevate communication antennas in an emergency - typically a hurricane, earthquake, or other natural disaster.
The system utilizes any available telephone or electric utility pole, climbing up the pole and deploying an attached antenna. More information on the system is available here: http://www.robots-dreams.com/2013/10/world-maker-faire-2013-emergency-communication-robot.html
