This bot would feel at home in the jungle

Goes where humans can't


Now this is our kind of robot. If you're going to go the droid route, we figure, don't mess around with the type of sissy-bots that are so prevalent these days--go for the brute factor instead.

That's why we like the "Ellos RescueBot," which Gearfuse describes as a "damage-resistant" machine designed to go where humans can't in emergencies. Its description makes it sound more like something from the Amazon (the river, not the store) than a piece of robotics: "Its main standout feature is 10 lifting arms on its bottom. When it reaches its target, the legs extend, closing around the subject."

There's no information about its diet, but we suspect it has Robosapiens for breakfast.
