I have just seen a breaking development in the area of Navy robot technology. It would appear that they have developed a firefighting robot that can target and extinguish the blaze.
http://artificialpublicservants.blogspot.com/ This would be extremely useful especially if a carrier or other warship is attacked it would mean only a minimal human firefighting crew would be needed to extinguish fires. The rest of the crew could focus on counter offensive or defensive measures which are heavily needed during the heat of combat.

It has autonomous thermal sensors that determine the target area it uses a prussurized hose. Try switching your proxy just go to Internet options/connections then LAN settings get a free proxy from somewhere like alive proxy just google it if you want to see the page from work. It is pretty neat hopefully a civilian prototype will emerge.
