First off, not only where we surprised to discover that there's an International Fire Fighting Robot Contest, but it was even more shocking to learn that it's in its eleventh year. Where have we been? Anyway, for whatever reason the Israelis totally dominate the world of fire fighting robotics competitions (sorta like the East Germans and Olympic swimming back in the Seventies, but without the steroids), and came away with all three top prizes at this year's event which was held this month at Trinity College in Connecticut.
