Toshiba - Prototype of nuclear decontamination robot (from Japan Times)

In Japan, since the nuclear disaster that began in 2011, innovation and development has been put into the cleanup effort.

Here is a video from Japan Times that shows a prototype of a decontamination robot developed by Toshiba Corporation. This could be used to take the place of humans risking their health in dangerously contaminated areas.

It is guided remotely through computers and video game controllers and uses dry ice and a vacuuming process to remove radioactive material.

This type of technology could be very effective in the current disaster and potential future situations. But let’s hope there is little actual need for this in the future.
