iRobot 110 FirstLook

iRobot, creators of many functional and useful robots have just unveiled pre-production prototypes of their upcoming robot – the iRobot 110 FirstLook. Designed to jump right into action, the iRobot 110 FirstLook is built to serve the military and law enforcement. Weighing less than 5lbs and measuring only 10″ long, this small spy robot is also waterproof (up to 3′), shockproof (15′ drops onto concrete), climbs steps, curbs, obstacles and can even turn itself right side up when flipped. Its relatively small size ensures it can get into tight spots to perform observations or investigations. The robot packs 4 cameras, 2-way audio communications, and is controlled by a wrist-mounted touchscreen operator control unit (OCU) with a built-in radio. With batteries that last up to 6 hours of runtime on a typical mission and 10 hours for performing stationary video recording, it’s bound to be ever ready for duty. Not to mention IR illumination capabilities for low light/no light conditions. No prices have been announced but the 110 FirstLook will be available in 2012. Head here for more information.
