A Chilean company used a robot called Arturito (In Spanish Star Wars R2D2 is named Arturito, which means little Arthur) to find a Spanish gold treasure buried in 1715 by Spanish sailor Juan Esteban Ubilla y Echeverria.

The gold treasure is estimated to be worth 10 Billion Dollars. The mobile robot has a scanner that can find objects until a depth of 50 meters.
I guess this robot paid for itself. Full story on The Gardian. Photo via Prylfeber.
