iRobot's Bomb-disposing PackBot Heads Out to WarLouis Ramirez2/07/07 11:25amFiled to: RobotsMilitaryPackBotPackBot 510iRobotiRobot PackBot 5105EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink The folks at iRobot (yeah, the same guys that make the Roomba) are ready to send their new PackBot 510 out to battle. The PackBot is a bomb-disposing robot used out in the field where it's too dangerous for soldiers to maneuver. The new PackBot 510 is 30% faster and stronger than its predecessor. It's also easier to control. So easy that its hand controller could double for your 360 controller. We're still waiting for the Wiimote-controlled version, however.
