+ - SPAM: Marines want lots of robots they can throw

Submitted by

coondoggie writes "The US Marine Corp has a request — build and rapidly deploy more 10lb or under robots its personnel can throw into dangerous situations that can quickly gather information without endangering Marines. The throwable robot is part of a family of robots that would range from the 10lb version, to one that would act as a central controlling device and weigh close to 300lbs. Marine commanders are demanding ever lighter robots so that troops don't have to offload critical equipment from their rucksacks to accommodate them. [spam URL stripped]"
