With four cameras and two-way radio, the FirstLook is designed for quick, urban recon missions. At just under five pounds and 10 inches long, it can provide “hasty situational awareness,” keep an eye out for long periods of time and check out confined spaces.

“The idea is you can chuck this thing into a room and see what’s in there,” said Robert Moses, the president of iRobot’s government and industrial robots division.

The FirstLook robot can survive a 15-foot drop and is waterproof to three feet. It also can climb over curbs and up stairs, and right itself after getting flipped over.
