That doesn't look very impressive. It looks like a high school project... I doubt the students at MIT would be able to keep a straight face watching that video. I certainly wouldn't count on it to save my life in a disaster zone.

You call that a robot? In 2017? Really? Looks like it will fall apart any second.

I want something creepy. Didn't some research demonstrate they can control a cockroach remotely? They can just mount a really small camera and RC the cockroach to look for survivors (besides using them as eavesdropping tools).

Indeed and I am 100% sure there is somebody who does remote control the toy that wire, nothing impressive...

Ithats a nice robot. It has 4 flexible belt wheels and an arm. I think its the best configuration concept for a robot. It could be improved with custom made parts and not off the shelves parts.

With the risk of having my comment deleted as being non relevant.

I still think a small model will make great Christmas presents and give kids the knowledge to become future robotic researchers.

By making it in kit form and less complicated for assembly .

Making all components plug in .

Then follow up with a wall climbing tracked crane that climbs buildings for demolishing. which is very easy to design . both of which have space and Army possibilities.
