Some blocky miners are in danger, somebody has to rescue them but the mission it is just to dangerous for an human... so here it comes 'LeelaV2', the multipurpose printable robot.

The robot features several handy features to trespass any difficulty: Snake movements, 360 rotations, Crab movements, Anti-slip positions

With the arms and rotable loading platform (the camera rotates, block is loaded onto the platform and camera goes back to initial position to continue) the robot is able to lift 10 to 2 cms sided boxes.
