The folks at iRobot stopped developing Jetsons-inspired robot vacuum cleaners for a second to crank out the Sentinel, a technology that allows users to control several different robots simultaneously from a Tablet PC. The technology is being aimed at our fighting men and first responders so they can more safely and efficiently haul ass. The Army threw iRobot some cash to develop the Sentinel, so it's only a matter of time before the technology is deployed in any one of our well-managed theaters of operation.
iRobot, from vacuum cleaners to house-to-house combat robots. A name you can trust.
