iRobot 110: The Remote-Controlled Pocket Bot

Simply put, the iRobot 110 is a “small, light, throwable robot that provides hasty situational awareness, performs persistent observation and investigates confined spaces.” Video after the break.

Both the U.S. Army and Marine Corps are expected shortly to issue “urgent” battlefield requests for 3,500 to 5,000 of the micro machines. The idea that these new models can be tossed into a building or over a wall, allowing an infantryman to get a sense of what’s inside a room before he kicks down the door.
