A Giant Insect Robot Could Save Lifes

The Elios RescueBot was designed by Industrial Designer Marcos Nolan, he solves, an interesting challenge, how do we rescue people trapped in in-traversable areas or war zones? Where humans can't go, the Elios can.
The resistant armor protects the robot as it walks to its target, with an optical and biometric sensors keep the robot on course dynamically calculating new routes as needed. The main feature are the 10 lifting arms concealed beneath the robot. When it reaches its target, the arms open and descend carefully lifting people into safety. The robot then makes a swift return out of harms way and transports the rescued victims to the nearest hospital.
