Tools of the Trade (164 of 365)


At the recent airshow I attended, in addition to lots of airplanes, there were several police and fire demonstrations set up. One demonstration was from the DeKalb County Police Department and included their bomb disposal robots. These robots were really neat! They are used by officers to remove bombs from sites and move them to a container where they can be safely detonated.

The officers had two of these robots wandering around their booth. At times, they were both interacting with the crowd. At one point, one of the robots held my hand! In this photo, the officer directing the robot is having it tail another officer headed inside. The robot nearly ran him down before he was spotted!
