Maine Twins' Fire-Fighting Robot Catches On
Twin brothers from Maine have devised an unmanned vehicle that's being hailed as the world's first fire-fighting robot. Identical twins Michael and Geoffrey Howe, of Howe Howe Technologies in Waterboro, have a background as defense contractors, building robotic bomb-sniffing and surveillance vehicles for the military.
Our Howe And Howe Technologies’ Adventure Trip
In early May, ATV Rider Editor Thad Josey and I road-tripped it to Howe and Howe Technologies' main headquarters in Waterboro, Maine, in the hopes of riding their Mini Rip. What we envisioned as a basic ride test instead turned into the greatest adventure story I've ever been involved with
Waterboro-based company builds firefighter robots to go places where people can’t
The nuclear plant meltdowns after Japan’s catastrophic earthquake and resultant tsunamis 17 months ago gave Geoff and Mike Howe pause.
The twin inventors who head the Waterboro-based Howe & Howe Technologies — subject of a popular television show on the Discovery Channel — realized there were more ways their now famous unmanned military vehicles could be used to help keep people out of harm’s way.
Howe brothers discover precision fabrication
How are fabricators made? The Howes are fabricators made from natural inquisitiveness, tireless enthusiasm, and keen intellect. No formal fabricating training was needed.
Invention Awards: Ripsaw Tank Delivers Death at 60MPH
Today's featured Invention Award winner really requires no justification--it's an unmanned, armed tank faster than anything the US Army has. Behold, the Ripsaw.
Howe and Howe Technologies deals with vandalism
Suspected metal thieves are being blamed for extensive damage to a test facility in Lebanon owned by Howe and Howe Technologies, an extreme-vehicle fabricator that was featured for two seasons on the Discovery Channel.
Geoffrey Howe, a co-owner of the Waterboro-based company, said he noticed the damage earlier this month when he entered the site to test a robotic ballistic shield suitable for SWAT team use in front of Maine State Police.
Howe & Howe Technologies’ fire-fighting, unmanned ground vehicle removes the human element from hazardous environments and rescues downed victims with its robotic arm.
Firefighters have an extremely dangerous career involving high-risk challenges that could result in critical injuries or fatalities. Most of the time, they enter into hazardous environments with limited visibility, toxic chemicals, and extreme heat variations.
