A really cool part about the robot is that it is controlled by a modified Xbox controller. I can’t help but wonder when gaming will be part of basic training. Supposedly the robot will be ready for use in combat zones this spring.The cost for this robotic gadget is a reasonably cheap $150,000, reasonably cheap when you consider this is the army that pays $5000 for toilet seats. I guess the use of modified Xbox controllers means that the many soldiers that game will be much more familiar with the control layout. Story and image via Sci Fi Tech
