iRobot Engineer Doug Marsden presented a fascinating program for teens on ROBOTS.

Robots perform what is

Dull   ~~~   Dirty   ~~~   and Dangerous !

From floor and carpet sweepers, to gutter cleaners, robots can take the drudgery out of home upkeep.
More sophisticated robots like this one save lives by examining dangerous areas in warfare, in terrorist situations, in police action, and in medical applications.
Robots helped with nuclear clean-up in Japan after the tsunami, oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico, and vehicle and potential bomb examinations in the recent Boston Marathon bombings.
