Time for me to soup up my Romba vacuum.

Looks like the new $399 version has room for a turret.

Best of all it cleans up after itself.



I really thought the above video was a hoax, that two people were carrying it around for the first few seconds. I wonder how much more inefficient walking is then a wheel? I'd assume way more energy is needed. It could be more for show.


People usually underestimate how heavy ammo is too. In the movies people have magic guns with infinite bullets and in war movies you see the heroes firing off there body weight in ammo in under a minute, magically more appears.


Still, such bots might be useful if we ever run into a Cloning War problem. Or vice versa ;).
