we were saying that as a joke. i guess it wasn't clear! sorry. you know, roombas driving around with tasers attached to their heads...
iRobot Roomba NOT equiped w/TASER...but PackBot is...
I have just read a story that describes TASER and iRobot teaming up to equip iRobot's military/law-enforcement robot, the PackBot, with an X26 TASER unit. I think the early details on yesterday's story (ep. 508, http://www.vnunet.com/vnunet/news/2193273/robocop-comes-streets) weren't fleshed out yet. More details here:
However - putting a TASER on your Roomba and modifying its programming to act as a "sentry" vehicle may be a lost cost alternative for the home. ...That could also be a painful experience figuring that out though - you have been warned
