This robot rat could be very helpful in a lot of ways, going places where a man cannot go, looking for people buried in rubble, or searching for survivors in war.

But they have to be strong enough to survive a rat trap. And instead of dropping poop, the will have to drop radio relays.

I love this kind of tech. I want one.
