What does an iRobot engineer do for their Masters thesis? Build a robot, of course -- and, in the case of this one particular unnamed engineer, a stair-climbing robot. Unfortunately, any other details are a bit hard to come by, but it looks like the folks at iRobot were impressed enough with the bot to throw a short video of it up on the company's official YouTube channel. As you can see for yourself after the break, while it is a bit on the pokey side, it certainly seems to be more than capable of performing the task at hand with ease, and with some satisfactory buzzing and whirring sounds to boot.
