Raytheon’s Heavy Lifter is a Real-Life Aliens Powerloader

Have you always wanted a real-life, fully-functional version of the Aliens Powerloader, then look no further than the Raytheon heavy lifter. This robot “could help with rescue operations to quickly clear debris and find survivors.” Video after the break.

Beyond that, Raytheon’s arms would also require very little training, as you don’t need to learn which buttons or knobs do what – you just move your arms like you would, and are even provided with some force feedback so that you’re feeling what the ‘bot arms do.
