"Wall-E" lookalike checks Welsh Water
A water company is using a robot that looks like animated film star Wall-E to check for quality levels in their reservoirs.
Welsh Water have started using the VR-600 to check their supplies in North and South Wales.
It's designed by a company called Panton McLeod and is used to check water quality across Wales.
Sales and Operations director at Panton McLeod Paul Henderson said:
"We inspect the inside of the reservoirs to check they are still good enough quality to hold drinking water.
"The robot has a camera and lights and initially does a condition survey to check the condition of the concrete, water tightness and any sediment on the floor."
So is the fact the robot looks like Wall-E just a co-incidence? Paul added:
"It has a stark resemblance to Wall-E but our machine was around long before Wall-E."
