We finished it 5 weeks and 6 days early, so we flew it to Isreal to do some anti-terrorism work

After getting back past midnight from working on the robot... this made me laugh. Thank you, everyone needs a little bit of humor now and again ;)

the story behind this:

the guy was a suspected suicide bomber who they thought was dead, so they sent the bomb robot to drag him out of the road. When the robot grabbed his arm they found out he had just passed out and was not injured. They said "what the heck" and used the robot to drag him to police and pin him down while they arrested him. He was a terrorist and they found some explosives on him.

A good example of non-autonomous robotics being put to good use.
