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.
