The Salt Lake City-based company’s Jetson TX2-powered bot can tunnel into ducts and underground tanks, explore hazmat and SWAT situations, climb walls — and blow minds.
Check out some of its tricks:
Child’s play: The Slinky intrigued a generation of kids by going down stairs. The Sarcos Guardian S can go up them, using its bulldozer-like tracks.
Do the Evel Knievel: Once up the stairs — it’s time for wheelies — and onto the next challenge.
All eyes on me: Slithering across a platform in front of a crowd of awestruck onlookers. The Sarcos robot can right itself if it tips over.
If Inspector Gadget had a self-propelled arm: The Guardian S crawls through ducts, and around their corners, like nobody’s business.
Upsy daisy: If that weren’t enough, the Guardian S climbs walls.
