More and more these days robots are becoming less science fiction and more reality. We have robots that vacuum our floors, and they are even taking over many jobs that were once done by humans. Even the United States government is getting in on the action. Here we will discuss seven robots which are currently being developed by the Pentagon. One or two sounds right, but seven? What could they possibly be used for? Well, lets find out, shall we?
1. RiSE, the Climbing Robot
This insect looking contraption is a climber, capable of taking on fences, trees, and even walls. It is equipped with ‘micro claws’ which helps it get a grip on surfaces with texture, and it has six legs with which to do its climbing. It weighs in at just over four pounds and can climb nearly .7 miles per hour.
