Strongest robot in the world - level 2

Strongest robot in the world - level 2

24-06-2015 15:00

A Japanese company created the strongest robot in the world. The company hopes that it will redefine factory automation capabilities.

The robot has a long name – M-20001A/1700L – but that is not important. What is, is that it can lift up to 1.7 tonnes. That is the equivalent of two small cars or 24 people.

The robot also has the highest level of protection. It is almost indestructible.

Difficult words: redefine (to change dramatically), equivalent (something which is the same in something like weight), indestructible (something which cannot be destroyed).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
