Not a Transformer!


It looks like a Transformer - but it`s real! This is the t-musk T-52. It designed to be a rescue robot with those huge arms for clearing away rubble from collapsed building or wreckage from a car crash. In fact it is, stricty speaking, not a robot at all as it does not act autonomously but is tele-operated. However, it is sobering to think that one day, with the right AI software one of these things may be rescuing you from a burning vehicle without any human intervention! I am not sure whether to include this machine in my robot book. As always, if you have any requests for robots to be included in the book or just to voice your interest in the book (to make sure I can get a publisher) please leave a comment.
