[HuffPo]ReconRobotics' Recon Scout Throwable Bot To Climb Boats, Foil Pirates

post #1 of 11

ReconRobotics and SSC Pacific announced a new bot that can be blasted out of a gun, crawl metallic walls and be deployed via a larger "marsupial" robot. This one pound, beercab-sized bot is a modified version of ReconRobotics' Recon Scout Throwbot. Discover Magazine's Discoblog reports that U.S. forces have already been using the current version of the ReconScout Throwbot, which can be tossed 120 feet, in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The future looks less like Skynet and more like Minority Report every day.

The new bot will have magnetized wheels for "climbing up and over" a ship's hull (watch a prototype in the video below)

@aroc: was just about to point that out

Just when I thought we couldn't come up with more nifty things, they pull this out. I could see it being used by SWAT teams to bring cameras up elevator shafts, too. Oh, the possibilities....

Seems to me a pretty obvious invention. Like....if I actually thought they needed something like this I could have thought it up in one night.

Looks like something Mythbusters could have made in half a day. 2 motors independently powered with electromagnetic wheels...add sensors and camera, walla?
