Tiny Pocketbots Are Not Your Children’s Toy!


When our US military ever came up with the idea of having robots to do all the dangerous stuff, we took it seriously. Maybe way to serious. We had huge robots that messed up and when it flipped over. MISSION ABORTED. The main problem: the weight. You really won’t want to carry around a 50 pound robot and tossing it through windows and running away to get set up for the robot mission. I mean, come on man! That’s just a burden that you carry (literally) on your back.

The US military has finally developed something new. The new Pocketbots or called the iRobot 110. This new robot is just a start in the advances of our military and in the advances of technology. Don’t worry this robot doesn’t shoot you down with missiles and have huge alarms. This is just short and sweet. This is a robot that has great grip, can go on hard terrain and pass through all sorts of  obstacles. If it falls upside down, it just pushes itself back up. Here we go. Ready for this?

The army has planned to use 3,500 to 5,000 of these “toys” for use in battlefields and other rough and tough missions that have great danger towards human lives. How? he basic principle is to use this little robot to be tossed into a building and search through it before a soldier breaks through the door and watches out for any treacherous people or things. Precautions will also be shown with the camera on the micro machine. If theses work perfectly, the US army could have a perfect place for this little bugger.

This little machine is planned to be equipped with ever soldier so they can take an extra precautionary to know what’s coming for them when we bring out the bring guns at the battlefield. The video on top explains about this pocketbot and some examples in what situation this is used in.

Remember kids, this isn’t a simple remote controlled car you can use to play around. This is something that you probably don’t want to use. If you want it, then get a LEGO Mindstorm for it. This isn’t your everyday day children’s toy.

MW3: Modern Warfare 3! AR3 YOU R3ADY?


Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s recent poster for the promotion of the game.

The biggest Call of Duty franchise has once again done it. It’s new hit sequel to it’s blockbuster Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warefare 3, will be the next big thing for all gamers. I’m predicting that this will probably become the greatest game to make a record to beat Call of Duty: Black Ops. Modern Warfare 3 is now ready for all sorts of action packed fun and everyone is ready for it.

As said later last week, Activision and Infinity Ward sent out news for pre-orders for the new games. Within the next day already half the country had pre-ordered the game. That was fast. Not much people are ready to pre-order the game until the game really comes out on November 8th, 2011, and when reviews are to be released for the game. Everyone is just waiting and waiting until the game finally comes out.

This isn’t the best part of just the game. Activision had taken it another step. Check out Call of Duty: Elite. An online game service to check maps, guns , and everything else. Right know it’s in the beta testing mode so don’t get too excited about it. You can currently go and check this out at http://www.callofduty.com/elite. It is a really cool beta and has some really great features along with the game too.

MW3 is also coming with some more action packed features to feed off of Modern Warfare 2. Here you’re in the situation of a the same person from MW2 (forgot his name), but here you’re in the situation of a big war where USA is involved of being bombed in some of it’s cities. Germany, France, and England are in the stage of war. That’s pretty much all the teasers and trailers tell us. There’s nothing else we know from this game. Get ready guys for a ride that will take you into some deep, deep, addicting gaming for probably the rest of your year.

P.S.

The website will be under the control of another author during the summer due to some problems with my computer etc. I will get that all fixed and then it will be possible for me to come back and take over the website. Thanks!
