iRobot Warrior Robot Demonstration

iRobot demonstrated its latest military bot, the Warrior, this week. Soldiers direct the robot into a questionable field. After arrival, the Warrior throws an APOBS (Mk7 Anti-personnel Obstacle Breaching System) across the air. Once the grenades hit the ground they explode, supposedly taking out any hidden IEDs or land mines and clearing the way for the military. Good news for those who support arming robots and iRobot's coffer, not so good for any human/animal caught in the crossfire.
