We are nowhere near the capability of science fiction with robots today. We may never field a droid army or have terminators striding across the battlefield rather than human soldiers. However, there are robots in use with armed forces and police around the world today.
One of the major providers of robots for the military is iRobot. The company has announced that it has delivered its 3,000th PackBot tactical mobilerobot. The robot first debuted in 2002 and it is used by the military to inspect suspicious objects and in other situations from a distance.
The PackBot can be fitted for different usages including ordinance disposal. The bot streams video from a camera mounted on the chassis and an array of sensors. The PackBot is controlled by a game-style hand controller for fast training and easier operation.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
