The Xbox 360 helps clean up nuclear mess in Japan
QinetiQ has sent unmanned robots to Japan to help at the Fukushima plant. The robots have Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive detection kits, which help them identify over 7,500 environmental hazards. These are the same robots that helped decontaminate Ground Zero. They’re controlled with Xbox 360 pads.
