It looks like something out of a sci-fi nightmare, but the Prodrone Robot Arm Drone is far more useful than intimidating. Based on the company’s existing large capacity airframe, this aerial tool has a pair of five-axis robotic arms that can perform a number of tasks, from picking up and moving objects up to 22 lbs. to cutting wires and flipping switches at altitudes — up to 5,000 feet — where direct human interaction is inconvenient or impossible. Capable of operating in nearly any weather, it’s limited only by the person at the controls.
