Updated General Purpose Robot

So far, my robot designs have been pretty much just conceptual, but now I’m starting to think about how they might actually be built to serve a real world purpose.

Hence, this shot at a general purpose robot:

The red horseshoe bar is for airlifting via helicopter. I’m using only one camera because two-camera bots are for virtual reality, which this thing is not. I went with the four wheel base instead of the six wheel base, because I honestly don’t see much advantage in six wheels, and with the four wheel base I actually have the capability of turning.

The manipulators are horrid, I agree. If you just glance at them, they’re all right for illustrative purposes. But I need something less cartoony, that actually could be built and serve a purpose. Or did I mention that?
