If you’re anything like me, a seasoned veteran of all things CSI, Dexter and GI Joe, you understand the value in a discreet robotic camera such as the ReconRobotics Throwbot XT Reconnaissance Robot. The presser describes the Throwbot XT as a throwable, mobile micro-robot — I’ll just say the robot is awesome. This little robot can pipe live audio and video to the good guys ready to save the day.
Unfortunately the Throwbot XT isn’t coming to a Walmart near you. This little guy is meant for real work and not for keeping an eye on the cat. It’s designed to provide audio and video reconnaissance to military and SWAT teams. The robot itself only weights 1.2lbs and can survive a 120 feet throw. ReconRobots states it’s “exceptionally quiet” and thanks to an automatic infrared optical system, it can provide surveillance even in complete darkness. The capture media is feed wirelessly to the handheld Operator Control Unit II.
No word on pricing or availability, but it really doesn’t matter. You probably need a DoD or NYPD credit card to order one anyway.
Given that “City” is in the name, SimCity has always felt like a title in need of a social platform. Fast forward a score or so since its inception, and fate seems to have finally played out. SimCity Social was just announced at E3 today, bringing the heralded city-building simulator to a social network that’s pushing a billion residents. The new game is being delivered courtesy of “a close collaboration between many talented people at Maxis and Playfish,” and anxious gamers are told to expect “no set linear paths to follow.” You’ll be dealing with things like fires, crime and pollution, and will be able to make calls to help virtual cities take shape. You can hit the source link to get in-game items at launch — or, you know, strive to become an actual mayor and make actual improvements in your community. No pressure.
