VIPeR Battlefield Robot: Maverick Hunter
Quote[Image: 2007_03_08t102437_450x342_us_israel_robot-1.jpg]No, wee are not teasing you with the headline. Robots officially kill people.

Developed by Elbit Systems Ltd for Israel's army to avoid hand-to-hand combat, the VIPeR is about the size of a small television and easily rolls up stairs and down into trenches (ok, with that trenches part wee kinda went freestyle, but the real list includes dark alleys, caves and narrow tunnels).

And when you are bored of its standard bomb disposal functions, the VIPeR can carry an Uzi and grenades that can be controlled (unleashing hell) from a remote location via camera feed. Wee knew it was just a matter of time until videogames got this good.

But our favorite part is the small "e" in VIPeR, as if Elbit Systems wasn't quite committed enough to go with the name "VIP3R" and really do some serious pwnage.
