Vladimir Putin Looks Unimpressed With Russian Robot

In recent years, Russia has been spending big in an effort to modernise its once-mighty military forces - modifying submarines, investing in satellites and generally making terrifying war noises. 

However, if the following demonstration of the Mother Land's latest tech is anything to go by, all that spending shouldn't be giving you sleepless nights. 

Apparently attending a military research institute outside Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin seemed unmoved by the display of an automated quadbike driver. 

It's not clear whether the robot is being controlled remotely, or whether its navigating its course all by itself. Maybe Putin was expecting Iron Man. Maybe someone had promised him some cake. Either way, he looks utterly heartbroken.
