Chicago is trying out a new machine to repair potholes. Because of all the snowfall, potholes have become a huge problem this winter.

City officials have already increased the number of repair crews. They may soon be getting help from a new machine, which can fix the potholes faster.

The operator in the specially designed truck controls a robotic arm which dispenses the material used to patch a pothole.
