DARPATech 2007, the Pentagon CES, always brings all kinds of weird robots ready to defend the troops and help kill the baddies.

Like the Organic Air Vehicle, which uses a laser to pinpoint targets floating from nine miles away. And the Micro Air Vehicle, a monitoring hovering bot that can alert troops of enemy presence. Or the StickyBot, which can climb walls like a gecko. And kill people by biting their buttocks, I guess. Not sure how useful would be for the military, but I want one.


On the big image above is the Little Dog, which is a blind robot that uses external cameras to recognize the terrain and walk round obstacles. It was developed to improve its bigger sibling's performance. [Popular Mechanics]
