I agree, an autonomous industrial robot would be unnerving, like, well, Transformers gone wild?

Excellent post Elizabeth.  Also Beth, I agree completely with your comments relative to this "device" being deployed around the globe to aid the efforts of forecasters.  I can see how these "robots" could provide additional early warning as well as improve understanding of the physics associated with storms developing and those in progress.  I'm going to get on my soap box here and say I have no idea as to what our Congress does with their time and I would suspect the only grant money available will money that helps them get re-elected.  (NOTE: Please see abdication of all efforts to fund NASA's manned space flight program.) At any rate, I think this is a good use of VC money and tax payer's money.
