ROBOTOPS Construction Crane


ROBOTOPS, built by the Japanese company Tadano Ltd., has been designed to work in construction sites or disaster areas. The bot is an automated crane that has a 3-chip CCD camera, remote control and 29 functional joints for picking up rocks, wood or other additional material, not to mention any wayward humans. Not out in public yet, the company plans to sell them ASAP. If you see one, run the other way.
