The End Nears: Dogo, A Tiny Tank Robot With Glock Pistol

May 19, 2016

Meet Dogo, a small 26-pound remote controlled tank robot that carries a 9mm Glock pistol inside. The tank is capable of climbing stairs and is outfitted with two-way audio communications so you can try to negotiate with your target before shooting and killing them. The gun can hold up to 14 rounds and is capable of remote-firing five rounds in two seconds with impressive accuracy due to the tank's ability to absorb recoil. I just added one to my Christmas list! Along with 'a really good lawyer.'

It trundles along at 2.5 miles an hour for at least two hours on one battery charge. The operator gets a 360-degree view of the surroundings via six video cameras, while another two cameras are sighted along the pistol barrel.


To aim it, the operator would use the company's "Point & Shoot" interface. He or she simply touches the aim point on the screen of the control unit. A laser dot shows the aim point; in the demonstration video a target wearing body armor is shot in the head, and the robot repeatedly hits the bullseye on a paper target.

Obviously, the key to surviving a run in with a Dogo is staying behind it where it can't shoot you. "What if there's two?" Then you're screwed. Maybe try to flip them over on their backs like turtles? I don't know but these are gonna be awesome to play BattleBots with. "Sounds like an expensive hobby." Yeah well it's still cheaper than trying to skip diamonds across a river. "Nobody does that." I was just trying to put things into perspective.

Keep going for a video about Dogo, along with demonstrations.

Thanks to my buddy Kramer, who agrees they should make a helicopter version too so we can have sweet battles in the woods.

    The color, the name and the fact that it's holding the gun sideways says a lot.

    Coming soon to a jaywalking incident near you

    they need to put a self destruct explosive inside it just in case.

  • Now make a SUV version of it with a GAU 8 inside! XD

  • jodyberry

    When they say Point and Shoot, they really mean Point and SHOOT!

    I did giggle the whole video because I kept picturing putting google eyes and eyelashes on the tops of the camera bars to make them "cuter". They seem underwhelming and something terrorists would just pick up and then point back at us "I have your cute R2C3 fancy box thing now you filthy Yankee scum!"

    With that being said, the stairs did seem quite impressive - they went right up those in the video. Be interesting to see how they do on steeper, uneven stairs as well.

    Imagine if they had springy antenna type things and you put googly eyes on top.... no one would ever notice the glock!

  • Everyone knows holding your Glock sideways is a great way to not hit your target. Stupid robot.

  • HackTheGibson

    Id rather have one of their PitBull setups but id settle for one of these.

  • That is one angry sandwich toaster.

  • Jenness

    HA!! No shit

  • "Watch out! There's a Dogo coming into the room!"

    *walks over, picks it up, slams it against the wall and takes the free 9mm Glock*

  • Do go shit yourself and then submit to our robot overlords.

  • palpable ovaltine

    If only it weren't foiled by a baby gate.

  • Haha, I think you could probably drop a Toblerone at the exits and be totally fine.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    I wonder how long someone uses one to commit a crime...

  • ToyBoxofGuns

    Jesus, I JUST watched the video, give me a little time.

  • Meh

    And these things cost? Probably more than the 3d printed handgun taped to a drone.

  • HackTheGibson

    Crazy expensive. They are made by General Robotics who specializes in providing equipment for military and law enforcement.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I feel safer knowing these exist.
