Red Owl

This is surely the time of the military bot. We can now add the Red Owl to our “don’t send any more troops” iRobot collection. Developed by Glenn Thoren, a director at New Hampshire’s Insight Technology, the robot can be set up in a battlefield and can detect snipers’ hiding spaces by their report up to a mile away. Guided by a modified Xbox controller, the operator’s camera follows the bot movements and infrared lasers track targets while calculating the position by GPS.
