They say that these days there is a strange thing cruising across the streets of Russian city Perm. It has police signs on itself and uses public roads to move, it speaks to passers by with a robot-type voice and has a few cameras which make photos of events. The local police office said that it's an experimental automated police
machine for improving security in the city. We don't have perfect photos of this thing, I hope they would be available a few days later, though today many Russian Internet news agencies mentioned this machine. We could call it Russian Robocop in action but actually it looks more like R2-D2 in action.
One Russian blogger have met Gregory Perelman, Russian mathematician who refused to get $1,000,000 Field's prize some months ago. He didn't give any interviews and refused to meet anybody. And here he is, in St. Petersburg subway (his native city). According to the comment by the guy who made photos: "He looks like totally homeless trash, he had a very big nail on one of his fingers and was constantly
touching with it his mouth. I was amazed why nobody recognized him, I was making a photos with my camphone trying not to attract his attention. Later, when I told my friends that I met Perelman in the subway many just asked "Who is he?" so I understood why nobody recognized him."
