Ukrainian inventor has developed a demining robot that transforms into a kamikaze drone

15-year-old Ukrainian inventor Yermak Rogovy from Shostka created a unique demining robot that can detect anti-personnel and  anti-tank mines. The device is controlled remotely — it guarantees the safety of the operator in the case of an explosion. The robot is equipped with manipulator claws and a camera, as well as a special metal detector that detects mines at a depth of up to 30 centimeters. Due to its lightness, the robot does not blow up when it hits a mine, and informs TSN.

According to Yermak, the robot is multifunctional and can be used not only for demining. It can be operated as a kamikaze drone because the material of the robot, PVC plastic, is cheap and suitable for one-time use. The robot can also carry explosives or other cargo.
