Based on the leaked reports from worldnewsdailyreport.com, the robots were created to repair the ruptured parts of the power plant. The mechanical foundations of the prototype constructed was made possible with the government and private sector’s effort.

“At Toyota, we want the best for our customers. Our Fukushima plant worried consumers. We decided to solve the problem,” Toyota Japan CEO Hideya Kamikate said.

The prototypes were created with an estimated cost of $ 400 million each and they will be sent to neutralize the nuclear fuel rods to secure that there will no incident of fire might happen. A simple spark on the power plant might result into a great blast which has the capacity to cover an entire nation.

“By these means, we hope to avoid any human casualties . The radiation levels are too high for a human being to approach without sustaining heavy damage,” Japanese government nuclear technician confides.

After a magnitude 9.0 earthquake in Japan on March 11, 2011, the power reactors of of Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nucler Power Plant were damaged causing a radiation leaked on the country. Many countries were affected including recorded fatalities during the incident.
