Power tools and robot guts. Need we say more? This October, one of RobotWorx' robots goes under the knife for the edutainment cause.
The History Channel's new television show, Sliced, investigates the inner-workings of different machines - from toilets and armored vehicles, to mechanical bulls, and now, industrial robots. The upcoming Sliced: "Robots" episode will feature a Panasonic VR-005 CII from RobotWorx, as well as a iRobot Roomba vacuum, and select toy robots.
As in other episodes, Sliced host John McCalmont and his assistant Budd Kelley will use a variety of gnarly tools to dissect the robots. Plus, McCalmont and the industrial robot face-off for a cutting skills contest.
RobotWorx staff worked directly with Powderhouse Productions, the company producing Sliced, to find the right robot for the show. When it was time to shoot the episode, Jarrod Bichon, vice president of RobotWorx, provided on-site technical support.
Robots from RobotWorx have been featured on Modern Marvels: "Welding" episode, NBC's Knight Rider, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra.
