Israel's Robot You Dont Want to Mess With

Robotic Force Lethal and Non-Lethal General Robotics of Israel is launching a "less lethal" weapons module attached to their warrior robot DOGO.  It allows intervention forces to remotely neutralize a threat without collateral damage to bystanders, buildings and also reducing the risk of killing the predator, so that they can be interrogated later.  With the push of a button, the human operator of DOGO can select an accurate lethal or less than lethal weapon for deployment on the robot. Awesome Array of High Tech Crime Fighting Tech DOGO is remotely controlled.  It's a 22 pd., ultra lite, hand-held anti-terrorism robot.  General Robotics says it's good for a variety of missions:  hostage rescue, counter-terrorism, close quarters combat, urban warfare, target detection, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) and subterranean warfare.

Israeli Bots Packing Pistols

DOGO - The Warrior Robot They are fighter robots, designed for the Israeli military in battle zones. They carry Glock Pistols that are remotely controlled by humans.  It's robotics at the cutting edge of war.  And the potential of this is what worries innovators like Elon Musk - the eventual rise of killer robots. DOGO on Patrol DOGO looks like a PacBot, like Roomba the vacuum cleaner. But it's a lot more tech than that. It climbs stairs, fits into a soldier's backpack and rolls out in pairs.  It also carries a lethal weapon on its side. A human is the remote operator.  DOGO can't fire the weapon on its own. Remotely Controlled Firings DOGO crawls into place and then unfurls its 9mm Glock 26 compact pistol.  The robot is remotely controlled by a human with a handset that displays live video and allows the human to remotely fire the weapon.  This keeps the soldier off the direct line of fire - lifesaving robotic technology.  Police and first responders are also
