Demolition Robot

Did you watch the Seattle Kingdome demolition in 2000? That stadium was brought down by implosion techniques; however it’s not necessary to resort to kabooms every time you want to bring down walls or buildings. To knock them off safely something like the Kaputt.R Demolition Robot should suffice.

UPDATE: Check out the video of the robot in action

Features:

  • Kaputt.R has a folded two-armed architecture that allows a wide range of motion.
    A counter-weight effectively balances the extended arms.
  • It is propelled by 4 electric caterpillar tracks, allowing a wide and stable stance without exceeding the maximum load-bearing capacity of the floor.
  • A selection of tools can be attached, such as a buzz-saw, plow, or high precision tools like the power gun.
  • The Powergun was inspired by conventional explosive demolition.
  • To curb pollution and additional waste (wiring, casings, etc.) the Powergun uses propane gas as its shockwave source.
  • It directs pressure waves of propane gas explosions in a linear direction, effectively weakening walls by shooting holes through them. The wall can then easily be knocked down.

  • Does this demolition robot actually exist or is it merely a “blue-sky” prototype? Either way, I’d love to feature it in Demolition News.

    I hope you can take criticisim. First of all its a great concept for small buildings like stores or houses. But something the size off a stadium, i dont think this would appeal to demolition conpanies economically. Using explosives would be much less time-consuming and more cost effective, given that it is easily available. Also, the since the robot is inside the building while its trying to take it down, risk of having the building collapse on it and destroying it should be considered…unless they’re cheap enough to be disposable which i think is impossible. Anyway great concept still but don’t bite off more than you can chew. Keep up with the good work.

    Great concept but won’t be economically appealing to companies. Explosives still prove to be less time consuming and more cost effective. Really couldn’t imagine how long it’d take for a group of these to take down a stadium. I must say it would be perfect for small to medium sized building demolition though.

    Overall great concept. Keep up the good work.
