And I thought R2-D2 was cool…

We’ve all heard about the impact drones are having in Afghanistan and other sites in the world. (Drone strikes quadruple on Obama’s watch.) And we’ve all heard about the small hand-launched drones troops have been using.

Well, now they’ve made hand-held robots about the size of a small mouse for use by individual troops. They weigh just over a pound and can dart into rooms and other dangerous places and give the operator a view of what danger awaits them.

Read about them here. You’ll be stunned at this little thing, designed to fit in soldiers’ cargo pockets.

P.S. As a reminder, since I continue to get this question constantly, you do not need a Kindle to buy my book, “Little Man, and the Dixon County War .” You can read it from your computer, laptop, ipad, phone, or other device with this free download. And you can buy my book here, for $3.49. Read reviews of it here.
