The Robotic Hawk, named after its hawk-like features (sleek head and claw-like arms), has the ability to learn, well, whatever you decide to teach it.

The Robotic Hawk sits on a wheel base for standard movement, and the arms operate on six-degrees of freedom allowing the Hawk to perform a multitude of tasks (whatever you’d like to teach it).
