This fire fighter robot was a group project designed by Jordan Guelde and Daniel Shankland II. Each designed a robot, both using the same core parts but each is meant to perform unique tasks.
Guelde's robot is featured in the gallery and Shankland's can be seen at coroflot.com/dbs2.
"This is an advanced robot designed to clear large areas of foliage from around a forest fire to help stop the flames from spreading" says Yanko Design.
Unfortunately this transformer-like, good-looking robot is not designed to be used in real life situations; it is a robot designed for entertainment purposes only. Whose entertainment? That I don't know folks.
