Robots made by iRobot are all in place from children's toys to "Rumba" prototypes on military reconnaissance machines

We have been working on the site after the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and worked at places where people can not enter.Packbot"And the world's best-selling home robot vacuum cleaner" Rumba "IRobotSince many of the robots that the company has developed have been exhibited at the company's new product presentation venue, we have taken pictures and movies.

Arrived at the venue of the event to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the release of Rumba.

Lumba 600 series of new models will be announced and so on, so a lot of reporters are putting on us.

There was an exhibition space where robots that iRobot had developed in a corner of the venue line up.

Robot "Fast Look" to perform reconnaissance by throwing it from the window to the building where the enemy is lurking. With a robust design that will not break even when you hit the ground, it is possible to collect information on places where people can not go by watching the surroundings with the camera in the center of the body.

You can see that compare with humans is very compact.

Looking from above it looks like this.

It can be operated with a controller like a game machine.

You can change the height or turn over by moving legs beside the endless track.

Actually moving around looks like the following, it is surprisingly quick.

The high-end model "Rumba 780" which is still on sale now appears in 2011.

The latest model "Rumba 630" announced this day is like this.

It is an exhibition that can see the history of robot vacuum cleaner evolution.

In Japan, iRobot has a strong impression of robot vacuum cleaner "Rumba", but in the United StatesMedical support robotAlthough we are developing and developing a wide range of products including disaster countermeasures and military robots, not every robot gets odd but it is said that it is made primarily of "utility" first You can understand it at once.
