Many cities have massive traffic problems.

Gridlock is the worst.

Hours are wasted sitting in a vehicle going absolutely NOWHERE.
This is the case in the capital city of Kinshasa, Congo, in Africa.

Enter inventor Isaie Therese. Working with a team of Congolese engineers based at the Kinshasa Higher Institute of Applied Technique (ISTA), she created an 8-foot-tall robot that directs traffic.

And you WILL obey the robot!

These robots are solar-powered, have "eyes" to keep track of things and even have signs displaying messages. Oh, and their "arms" flail up and down to direct the traffic.

So, when do we get these here?
