    Re: Tactical Robot!

    Whoa, I'd heard about this being a possibility within a decade. I didn't know it was already being used.

      Why are there links to iRobot all over that site? Plus, that picture looks sort of photoshopped to be honest. Cool thing and all, but is it real?

        These are already being used, their just modified versions of the robots that go in to cleanup radio active waste.

        They already have armor plated robots with a gun to enter strongholds/occupied buildings. I dont think they are using these yet.

          They had one of these at E3 at the America's Army booth this year, It was functional and loaded up with all sorts of cameras and stuff. It was really neat looking. I think I have pictures of it somewhere..

            Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

              iRobot is the manufacturer of the PackBot... It's definitely real.
