Latest Invention: Thermite - Small Firefighting Robot


Meet Thermite - a compact firefighting robot from Howe Technologies. Its creator Howe made the robot resemble a boat that stands on a tank.

The machine is able to pump 600 gallons of water per minute. In comparison, a standard fire engine can pump about 1500 gallons per minute.

However, you take into consideration that the Thermite costs about 1/8th of a standard engine, you might want to have one at your home or office.

The robot is already available for shipping, costing over US$98,500.
