A friend of Professor Hisashi Sekine was stung about 90 times when trying to spray wasp nests to exterminate them. This caused Professor Hisashi Sekine from Utsunomiya, Japan to invent a remote controlled robot which can climb a ladder and spray the wasp nests.
The 170 cm tall humanoid sports a Mohawk hairdo and is constructed of lightweight metal and wood with sports motors in its joints. Called Mohican it responds to voice commands such as "climb the ladder," and "OMG, duck, they're flying into your delicate circuitry."
The humanoid is dressed in a bright yellow t-shirt and blue shorts. The Mohican is expected to be ready to slay wasps next spring as people will need to have some time to train with it.
The Professor said, "the hairstyles for humor, I want it to look friendly. I took it off the head of a mannequin at my local barber shop."
