GEEK MOMENT: Colossus the fire robot
I haven't had much time to sit down to blog. This topic was on my bucket list for May. With only a few days left in the month, I figured I should make some effort towards posting it. I'll attempt to do the topic justice sometime later.
Shark Robotics engineered these marvelous things. The corporation's push is to protect and save emergency services personnel. It more than proved its weight in gold during the blaze that could have absolutely destroyed Notre-Dame; this clever robot - in tandem with the men and women fighting the fire - prevented total loss.
The following is a short video from mashable.com.
"One of the tools that the Paris Fire Brigade used to contain the Notre-Dame blaze was a firefighting robot. Developed by Shark Robotics, Colossus is designed to be deployed in environments that are too hot and dangerous for human firefighters to operate." - MASHABLE.COM
More people may be familiar with their Atrax robot which is a "versatile technical support robot in dangerous areas, dedicated to make IED, CIED & CBRN tasks."
