Waltham company sells more military robots

Posted by Martin Finucane March 30, 2007 04:35 PM


A Waltham company is preparing troops to send into battle, but these troops aren't human. They're robots.

Foster-Miller Inc. recently sent the U.S. military 1,000 robots, the AP reports.

These robots can sniff bombs and keep human soldiers out of harm's way.
