iRobot iPad clone

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2010

The M003 Apad, a.k.a. iRobot, is a 7-inch, Android-OS iPad clone that costs $199.99 and is now available for shipping. The Apad supports Google Maps, HD video support and even has an integrated integrated webcam. There’s also 2GB of built-in storage though SD cards are supported.

Something tells me that this device won’t sell over a million in it’s first month, though many would buy this one just to get an iPad alternative.

iRobot delivers its 3,000th PackBot

Posted in iRobot by Shane McGlaun on February 17th, 2010

Robots are a big deal around here and we are all anxiously waiting for the day when robots will clean the house, mow the lawn, and cook for us so we can spend more time on video games and Facebook. There are some robots already available like the iRobot vacuum cleaners for homes and some robots for law enforcement and military use.

One of the most common robots in the military is the iRobot PackBot. iRobot has announced that it has shipped its 3,000th PackBot since the device was introduced in 2007. The PackBot has tank treads and an articulating arm with a camera to show the remote driver what is going on.

Botropolis: This week in robots

Botropolis: This week in robotsHappy Friday human readers. The way I see it, there are two kinds of humans: Those who mind their own damn business and those who create robots that will one day gut us, stuff us with candy, hang us from a tree and beat us senseless until candy comes pouring out. Thanks Science. Here’s some of what we covered over at Botropolis this week:

A robot hating on a vending machine.

ARTAIC Creates Unique Mosiac Artwork.

10 Awesome Robot Halloween Pumpkins.

Botropolis: This week in robots

BotropolisAnother week, another robot roundup. John Connor really has his work cut out for him. Right now it may be cute to make Nuclear Fuel Cells that fuel Terminators, or Transforming dinosaurs, but it’s no longer fun and games when a naked Terminator shows up in your town and steals your clothes and motorcycle. Here’s some of what we covered on Botropolis this week:

NSFW: A Girl Gets Transformed.

iPod Touch: It makes a good robot head.

iRobot: Ember bots.

To Serve and Protect: Robocop armor.

iRobot Create draws on the floor

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009


Who needs a printer when you have a robot that will gladly print on your floor? Don’t worry all you clean-freaks, it also cleans up after itself. This Roomba was hacked and outfitted with printer parts and now gladly treats your floor like a wall to be graffitied. Is that a word? It is now.

It draws, or prints in powder. Luckily after you are finished drawing, the bot can just vacuum it all up. Might be a fun way for spies to deliver messages. Be here at 3:15, get the message from the bot and order it to clean up and erase the evidence.

iRobot introduces second generation Looj

Posted in iRobot by Conner Flynn on January 8th, 2009

iRobot introduces second generation LoojOut of all the robots they could have introduced, it had to be the Looj. That gutter cleaning bot that is cool from a practical standpoint, but not so cool as far as robots go.

According to them, it has new features to make it more efficient. It drives easily under gutter straps, propelled by a three-stage auger that dislodges and eliminates all of that nasty dirt and gunk. It sports a new antenna, smart speed, and a battery door that doesn’t need tools to be opened. Yeah, not much to jump up and down about, but hey, gutters will be clean.

iRobot files Lawn Mowing Bot patent

iRobot files Lawn Mowing Bot patent
Our favorite makers of home robots, iRobot, won’t be satisfied until one of their creations kills us dead at home under the guise of cleaning or tidying up. One day your local police will have a special RV unit. That stands for Robotics Victim.

Anywho, iRobot has filed an iPatent for a lawn-mowing robot. It’s an 84-page filing with a variety of configurations, even an all-electric model and gas-electric hybrid. Some have acoustic and optical sensors that would seem to allow the robot to “avoid hard surfaces, water and other barriers”. Look, I’m on board with any bot you wanna put in my home. All I ask is that it’s aware of the fact that my heart pulled through my chest will kill me dead. Well, that and I want it to not be thrilled with that image.

Private ‘SUGV Early’ Reporting As Ordered, Sir!

Posted in iRobot,Robots by Chetz on April 25th, 2007

iRobot and Boeing to make SUGV Early RobotIf you didn’t already know, the military has been using iRobot’s services for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, sending versions called PackBots specially made to sniff out IEDs and do scouting in dangerous places so that real humans aren’t in danger.

With over 900 PackBots sold and in use so far the iRobot Corporation and Boeing are teaming up to create a new next gen robotic scout that will serve in the military as well as private sectors. Dubbed the Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle (SUGV) Early, this little droid will weigh less than 30 pounds, allowing troops to pack it into remote regions and then scout out areas for any enemy combatants or to map the terrain before moving troops ahead.

iRobot will design, develop and manufacture the Early robot while Boeing lends a hand with systems …
