Print comment Post Comments
Reuters is reporting that "iRobot Corp has won a contract valued at up to $230 million to deliver portable robotic systems used by U.S. troops to find and dispose of explosives and carry out reconnaissance, the Pentagon said on Tuesday."

The company behind the Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner was awarded the "indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for procurement of the small robots, repair parts and services, spares, training and various accessories" which runs through April 2015.

Someone at the Department of Defense obviously saw the video below and realized the way to defeat the enemy in an asymmetrical war is to simply "out-cute" them.

POSITION:  No positions in stocks mentioned.
