Black-I Robotics recently delivered a robot to Boston's Logan Airport that can help detect and disarm explosives. Paid for by $800,000 in Congressional funds, the Black Knight, named after the West Point mascot, replaces an outdated model, with its controller an Xbox console. The bot is one of three distributed and was dedicated to Army Ranger First Lt. Derek Hines, a West Point graduate who was killed in Afghanistan.
