We have thousands Barry joining us live and if you've ever seen the show before you know thousand Mary's our defense -- war specialist for foxnews.com.
Always has some great technology.
Every week every time we have -- and make sure I teaser about the GI Joseph underwear it is I don't have you and a half ago.
And how that was important.
This one a little more serious though as -- no my colleague Dominique did it tallies covered a big fire in Southern California few weeks ago we talked the company.
Out of Australia that was developing a drone that might -- help with fire fighting fires.
This is the war games article about robots doubts which could be used to fight fires as well as patrol -- thousand tell us all about it.
At -- never know and that is under is -- Yet so we I didn't hear about every week it back if I figured that the -- I did -- myself.
I didn't myself it's only fair by -- media -- So you're talking about -- virtualization player and that's a perfect segue for this because.
-- little robots -- they look like a -- so maybe not so cool.
But they have that could be incredibly they have potential to be incredibly useful firefighter fire isn't.
You know I feel about this -- anything that we can either reduce the risk to our firefighters and our first responders -- all -- so.
This little guy it's a little robots it's -- a mini version of a -- but it doesn't have a human onboard.
And it kind of crawls around inside.
Fire -- who at its residential or commercial police.
And what it -- before the firefighters arrive on scene are you before they go putting themselves and they still operate.
What happens is they -- he can which -- looking at it right now actually.
Such a cute little -- little -- But it's got its suite of sensors it's got -- cameras on it and thermal cameras that mapped out.
And very great detail for the firefighters couldn't have a virtual reality picture of what they're heading in -- so.
It can search for victims you have a fire while it's creating this very detailed picture and it Lou -- this 3-D map which is very critical it creates a 3-D map.
-- that paraphrasing exactly know what they're heading into seven getting great look at it -- now item gives everyone have a sense of what -- does -- fire.
The fire element there that that that.
A little less exciting but I safer than she's going to court -- at their.
So how how what.
How corporate power lines -- the viewers at home may not realize that's actually a very dangerous job to fly helicopters around power lines and inspect them.
To ensure their okay president didn't -- the high frequency once.
So how -- working hours because it it would climb up the -- in is obviously something it's remotely control.
Great so I need appreciate this one but I'm glad divided up -- is and I might not be obvious to everyone.
Power -- very very dangerous and it's -- dangerous jobs for looking after them in the inventive.
You we've had so many tragic natural disasters recently it was -- to deploy our power lines.
And I'm sure I'll let -- I didn't like what we're the safety rules at the -- paralyze lands on my car that's ripping.
So this isn't a different robot but coming out -- the same lab so I should give them credit let's get and I sat at University of California as robotic lab.
But getting to that have a little look at this little guy -- a different but he's called sky steeper.
I'm -- kind of -- that spacing between Helio is about drugs in the skies in the UGD -- -- war zones on the Landon.
I got tons of questions that -- remember we did that story an underwater robotics keep grass -- -- what's going on our homeland in.
But this is a great little and it it's an example he's very cheap inexpensive to -- they can make him the less than a thousand -- -- -- steal compared to the robot models using right now our.
As you suggested flying manned helicopter unmanned helicopters.
And you can see kind of client that uncle died in the he's -- -- -- And debt.
Not living there -- people offended it is you know you can see the little -- to kind of swings -- -- little monkey down the lines.
To invest any damage.
Running did you set the risk to you.
-- -- A couple of -- for -- next question personal Texas rose nine point seven appreciate you watching Melissa Williams got Scott.
That -- couple of obviously maybe baseball fans lot of stored for later.
Question for you on this so it are these things that are that are we're gonna see soon -- -- talk -- only thousand dollars for the power line one reason why I asked.
As we had a specials on from Australia couple weeks ago with a great idea about drones -- will help map buyers and -- -- -- firefighters out there you know the applications greatness may not be out in the field for a couple of years amid these things we're gonna see -- soon.
Great question in I'd like to see them really seeing we can't really cool little sneak peek at this guy -- because.
He's making his official debut in a big robotics convention.
That's happening in Asia this fall -- actually viewers at that he tells in the column.
If it like to vote for this little guy.
That team of love to participate in another event that's happening in New York but they need to be voted -- you like this little robot then I'd definitely.
Get to keyboards and give them a chance to go to New York as well.
The firefighter one yards and a lot interesting projects in the space.
A frustrating -- it takes longer than we'd like but they've been working very closely with San Diego fire department on this one so.
The prototypes are ready to go I just love to see them wheeled out more widely -- -- -- -- Adam.
Yeah I mean a thermal image imaging -- I looked up and obviously -- in the fields an -- in Gaza we have back to Los Angeles but.
Odyssey a thermal imaging and video but that to me.
To something that would be significantly don't have -- cover up a covered a lot of fires local regional national news and I Antalya and and a gondola fire -- before in full gear and asked Tony you don't really realize until you see with your own eyes.
You always talk about you know stop dropping and rolling it if you're ever in -- fire in your own home they actually the same thing firefighters go in you know on their hands and knees.
Due to the fact that of the thermal tissue so when you have a thermal imaging robot that that just makes their their their battle really.
Potentially that much safer.
Yet I think that that's such a great way of explaining it ends and the other thing I really love about Adam is you know it's got these sensors one of them is an electric that -- specific electronic little -- for nosing about to prevent.
The robot and it allows it to sniff out.
Volatile compounds and observe you viewers have all seen.
These movies where the fire suddenly take on that added dimension because of -- -- -- -- unknown chemical I was in the warehouse for the home.
I'm so this little guy can go in there and and talk about increasing the CD in reducing risks to firefighters that they know what chemicals -- -- -- inside a building before they get there you know that that information is knowledge readily available.
They can be incredibly dangerous whether it's -- -- lab or whether it's it just simple propane tanks these sorts of things that people might have around their homes.
It can be incredibly dangerous I love the idea of sending -- -- robot that's where robots and in aviation.
Can really make such a big difference in terms you know there's a lot of controversy surrounding robotics.
But I love -- simple ideas that can just making so much easier and safer our writer buyers.
Bright house a couple of viewers -- ones asking why can't direct water to those.
The fire hot spots will insist it will be good will direct firefighters were to go to put that water and then somebody -- flying high in -- says.
They -- still the lying to robot for the power lines won't work in the wind so I'm sure that.
That they're working on now we look forward to check out the articles on foxnews.com right now you can see Allison there's articles you courses defense -- specialists.
And if you want to see this article -- Are some of the other ones he's written you can see him on foxnews.com and -- and has some great stuff out -- it's really cool technology you're gonna see.
I used also in the real world not just for our first responders and military house and thanks for joining us from New York.
I think -- having him.
