Hands

Similar to grabber products sold in retail stores, his clasps are opened and closed by levers and elastic actuators in his torso.

Processor

Howie’s two quad-core 2.9 GHz processors, each with 12GB DDR4 RAM rest within his base, protected by a 600# heavy-duty, double-wall (82 ECT) corrugated box with a maximum load of 180 lbs.

Mobility

An all-terrain, zero-degree turn, anodized aluminum tank base gives Howie the green light on all terrain. He’ll even ford a river or scale a mountain to meet you when you call.

Battery

Howie’s onboard 3.7-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery packs enough juice for one hour on the move. When his battery gets low, he will automatically return to his docking station in your storage unit to recharge and resume surveillance monitoring.
