Watch a building get demolished

Steve, Wes and I were walking over to the library today for a meeting, when we started seeing a lot of dust. With all the construction going on around campus, we might not have thought anything of it – except that there was a certain building nearby which had been boarded up and scheduled for destruction. Sure enough, as we walked around the corner, there sat a giant semi-autonomous robot eating the rear corner of the bookstore.

It must have been hungry, because by the time we got back it had made some pretty good progress. Not quite as much as Steve thought it would have (I knew I should have wagered a beverage!), however. Perhaps it has been snacking on the remains of Carrigan.

The best part? You can watch it all live from the comfort of your home, office, or favorite coffee shop. For a bigger screening, try the East View link on the web cams page of the Davis site. I’ve heard we’ll be able to see a compilation clip of the whole process after it’s done. Stay tuned for more on that.
