iRobot celebrates first Robot Casualty in Iraq
 
 

iRobot Corporation learned last week from the Pentagon that one of its PackBot robots was "destroyed in action" for the first time.

Its destruction meant the life of a U.S. soldier may well have been saved, iRobot states.

The 42-pound PackBot Scout, costs around $50,000.
iRobot signed a contract worth an estimated $32 million to develop a smaller, more advanced form of the PackBot for the U.S. military.
More details in CNN story and on iRobot.com.
