Have you ever been sitting on your couch and wished it was a few degrees warmer? Ever left for a long weekend and forgot to change your thermostat so that your A/C didn’t run the whole time raising your power bill? Really don’t care enough about you thermostat to want to mess with it? Well then you’re in luck! The Nest Thermostat may be just what you are looking for.
iRobot does much more than keep your floors clean. They also manufacture the PackBot, a small teleoperated UGV designed to be rugged yet effective. Most recently, PackBots have been deployed to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan to measure radiation and assess damages. Remote controlled UAVs and construction equipment have also been deployed to aid in the cleanup and containment. An interesting departure from Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) and counter-insurgency applications.
