File Under Robot Infrastructure

In Leeuwarden, Netherlands they enjoy the comforts of a robotic overlord controlling a road bridge.  It looks less like a bridge than a giant transformer crouching next to the river, holding down a thin spatula of road surface.  From the road lines on the bridge arm it looks like cars just drive over the entire surface of the thing.  It’s a smart solution for a small bridge, even though its size is a bit ungainly, and they somehow thought painting cute post-modern pastel colors was interesting.
