This week’s #InuktunInTheWild sighting comes from a documentary available on Amazon Prime called, “Fukushima: Robots in Hell”. If you’re looking for something to add to your next binge television session, put this one on your list! The documentary draws upon hundreds of hours of footage filmed by robots, allowing viewers a firsthand look inside the Fukushima power plant’s nuclear reactors and providing a better understanding of what went wrong after the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. Best of all - you can see how to fix it.
Catch a glimpse of Inuktun’s crawler tracks on the robotic systems deployed by Hitachi (Snake) and Toshiba (Scorpion) in this trailer.
