The "Colossus", robot firefighter that helped save Norte Dame

The French robotics manufacturer Shark Robotics created a 1,100-pound Colossus robot, which is waterproof, fireproof, and resistant to thermal radiation.
Firefighters can equip the robot with a variety of tools, including the water canon that the French firefighters used to blast the Notre Dame fire with more than 660 gallons of water per minute. It’s operated via a joystick, which can function up to 1,000 feet away from the robot.
