iRobot's PackBot Explorer

It's been a little while since we've heard much about iRobot's PackBot—we understand they've been busy making those things that have been scrubbing and vacuuming our floors—which since we first checked it out over a year ago has since been recruited by the armed forces for Iraqi and Afghani military ops. Their latest version of the PackBot, the Explorer, doesn't seem too different from the original modular machine, but has a variety of surveillance and intelligence options including three cameras. Well, nice to check in and hear it's doing well for itself—just don't get all blowed up, ok PackBot?
