A robotics team from Leeds University together with the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt is preparing a robot to explore the great pyramid of Kofu built around 2,560 BC. The pyramid is the only wonder of the world that still stands. The robot will be used for drilling in shafts inside of the pyramid to reveal areas and rooms unknown to everyone now living.

It will be very exciting to see what comes from this project. This also a great use of technology and robots going into very small areas destroying as little as possible before archaeologists enter. This means less damage to the building but as well we can get new information about the pyramids construction and more about the Egyptian life 4500 years ago.
