2-22 Drive WALL-E Pic
What do you do when the post-disaster environment is too dangerous for people? Send in WALL*E!
The robots unveiled Wednesday at The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization aren’t as cute as the Pixar star, but they are neat looking (for pictures, click here), and they’re designed “to help deal with disasters such as the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant and reduce the danger for workers,” according to a Japan Times report.
Robots move on tracks that can handle stairs and can carry up to 50 kg of instruments and equipment. They are remote controlled and can even recharge and decontaminate themselves!
