Meet the Pincher. He’s tiny, he’s adorable, and like all tiny and adorable robots from Israel, cross him and he’ll ruin your s**t.
The Pincher is an anti-munitions robot designed to take out bombs at a distance with equally adorable and equally s**t-ruining pencil sized rockets, of which it has dozens. Just as worried about arming robots as the rest of us, Rafael, the defense contractor founded by a retired Ninja Turtle, has designed the munitions to “deflagrate”, which is a technical term for “set everything it touches on fire.” Oh, great, so instead of a killer robot being able to blow us up, all it can do is fire burning pencils of death into our squishy human eyes. Maybe it’ll team up with the robot that can see you at night and has an Uzi, that’ll end well:
