Remote-Controlled, Throwable Robots Developed At Carnegie Mellon In Conjunction With U.S. Marine Corps Are Being Sent To Iraq For Testing
PITTSBURGH -- Carnegie Mellon University robotics researchers, in conjunction with the U.S. Marine Corps' Warfighting Laboratory, have developed a small, throwable, remote-controlled prototype robot designed for surveillance in urban settings. Several of the robots are being sent to Iraq for testing

Looks like a nex gen pacbot or something. Although the pacbot could never do 20mph from what ive seen of it. I would like to see this thing climbs stairs like the pacbot. They seem to be made for the same role the new one seems lighter and eaiser to carry.

Looks more than a remote controlled car with a camera on than a robot. Looks like it will be pretty hand though, especially if you don't want to have to confirm that a group of men round the corner had weapons or not. just send the little one for a peak.

Hmmm... interesting. I personally like the models with the trap setup, ie weapons based. I would like to see what a terrorist would think when one starts shooting grenades and missles at them!

They must use energizer batteries

These things look pretty cool. But its only a matter of time before a flame thrower gets mounted on one and is torching the terrorist ragheads.

They can mount a large caliber machine gun on it and four rockets that have air burst capabilities this was used in Afghanistan in the caves sending in these robots with the rockets to eliminate the threat before troops entered I wish I had one to keep my little brother out of my room

Oh if you want to keep little brothers out of your room but a picture of him on your door then nobody will go anywhere near the door (Sadly I have a younger brother). But these things could be useful for guarding secretive facilities in the desert. There stealthy thanks to there size. You can put cool weapons on them, they have better vision than any human and don't need to take bathroom breaks in the middle of their shifts.

Naw man I just want a terminator outside my room to guard against all possible threats if they make this available in stores I will defiantly buy one mount some guns on that with remote control with some cameras its a killing machine.
