iRobot launches PackBot: not what you think
iRobot has put up their own YouTube channel, which they are calling iTube -- which I think is a sadly generic Web2.0 name, but oh well. The implementation is much better: the channel is going to have both amusing videos of iRobot products in action and videos of iRobot employees making announcements and answering questions about their designs. (Though I must point out a disturbing lack of Roomba Cat on that channel) On the "amusing" side, I've been giggling for a while over the flying PackBot.
I'm imagining one of those engineers going back to HQ insisting, "As God as my witness, I thought PackBots could fly..."
I'll have my iRobot fangirl hat on this week, since iRobot is supposed to be launching (in the non-flying sense) a new home robots product at CES that starts tomorrow in Las Vegas. Stay tuned!
