The Japanese have developed a robotic balloon
In the world there are so many different robots, but the genius of engineering does not sleep, constantly forcing people to create all the new robotic device. Often used for their production completely unimaginable at first sight materials. In Japan, for example, made of a giant robot, consisting of a thin and long sleeve filled with helium.
Given that the length of the trunk of the robot is as much as twenty meters, it weighs a little more than a kilogram, so it is, if desired, can be put in a pocket, purse or luggage compartment. The device turned out very flexible, moving a robot through pneumatic muscles, which are located throughout the length of the construction right outside.
The demo video recorded by the Japanese, to evaluate the scope and capabilities of the robot. Thanks to the camera, posted on the "nose" of the manipulator, the developers were able to look at different remote locations, while managing the device from your computer. Lift weights it just will not work, but help look somewhere and find something he is quite capable. The engineers see great potential in the robot, offering the use of its search and rescue operations.
