Honda Working on Rescue Robot That Might Actually Save a Lot of People

Honda is developing a robot designed to navigate through treacherous conditions following an emergency. It’s a rescue robot, and it can remove rubble, climb ladders, and fit itself into tiny spaces.

Like all robot prototypes, this one is expensive and unwieldy and definitely not ready for real-world conditions just yet. Still, look at the little guy climbing the ladder! He’s adorable!

The robot, called E2-DR, will be perfect for finding and eliminating any lingering human survivors after the robots attack.
