Arms of Destruction

BY Yanko Design POSTED ON February 04, 2011


Designers: Erol Kursani, Florian Wille, Anton Weichselbraun, Bernhard Ranner

There's no doubt who the star of this show is. The Kaputt.R demolition robot has one menacing looking arm but wait for it… there's two of them. Yes this robot has massive arms of destruction but no need to worry because this is not one of our future robot overlords. This robot is on our side.

Demolition is a hazardous job so it would make sense to create a robot to do the "dirty work" for us. Four industrial designers looked to the universal design benefits of an arm to create a machine that could easily navigate the unforgiving terrain of a construction site. The arms can work independently and cooperatively without human supervision. The folded two-arm architecture allows a wide range of motion, and provide a counter weight to effectively balance the robot.
