Ah the part time scientists. I met them on the 28c3 in Berlin in 2011(very fiendly and cool germans). They did a very impressive lecture on this thing and the project itself.

Still have a Tshirt of the guys :)

Here are two pictures of the rover in 2011. Changed a little bit :)

[edit] sry for the image quality, crappy iphone.

 He's got bragging rights ANYWHERE. How many ADULTS can say they've driven a lunar rover?

This would look great inside the Shermer High School shop class.

The guy sitting under the projector screen in r4ptor's photo kind of looks like Sergeant Schultz.

Dear Karsten,

If you have a moment, do you think you could print off an extra copy for us to tweak for Mars in 2018, just in case?

Thanks, bud! You're the best!

If you want to see some more german robots you should visit the DFKI-RIC in Bremen (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence - Robotics Innovation Center).
