Bomb Disposal Robot by Filipino Students

Last October, Students of the Mapua Institute won the top prize for their invention of a Bomb disposal robot. Mapua is known as one of the top Engineering universities in Manila.

The robot is wittingly called MAC, short for Mechanical Anti-Terrorist Concept, and it won the gold at the First World Cup of Computer-Implemented Inventions in China. It was a tough competition between the Philippine's MAC and the UK's computer-programmed Braille system but in the end the MAC bagged the most coveted award.

Read the more about it here or watch the presentation to see the project.
