PDI BorMar paintball gun can be mounted to robots

Cyrus Farivar

We just eyed PDI's BorMar paintball gun on display at this week's Risk Control in Tokyo (RISCON) exhibition, which wants its goers to "control risk to the fullest despite unavoidable difficulty." Apparently the BorMar can be hooked up to a robot for automated paintball firing up to 15m (49ft) and is ideally used in unmanned areas like a parking lot at night to splatter miscreants with bright red paint (or other assorted colors) if they trespass. Say, those Japanese engineers can make just about anything work with a robot right? We've got a spare Roomba around here somewhere.
