Punk rock insect killing robot unleashed upon nature's toughest hive

Next to insects overthrowing humans for control of the Earth, the other most imagined sci-fi apocalypse scenario is a robot rebellion. But what if our insectoid and robot would-be rulers were pitted against each other?

Developed by Japan's Professor Sekine the Mohican robot (a name inspired by its mohawk hairstyle) was designed to climb a ladder and spray insecticide to destroy wasp nests. Standing five feet, six inches tall, the robot is controlled by a combination of verbal and remote control commands all aimed at destroying dangerous wasp nests without risking the vicious sting of the hive.
