Robot Quince Inside Fukushima

Robonable has released a new video report from the inside of the demaged nuclear power plant reactor 2 in Fukushima. In late March 2012, one of the Japanese Quince robots, developed by Chiba Institute of Technology, was sent in to check on an unusual thermal reading in a certain area of the reactor. While inside, they checked the radiation levels as well. According to media reports radiation levels were much higher inside the plant than previously assumed.
