Colin_Angle_Economist_Innovation_Awards_2013

Earlier this week, the Economist held its Innovation Awards in London. In the “No Boundaries” category — created for technology-based products or services that don’t fit neatly into the usual categories — co-founder and CEO of iRobot was recognized for his role in advancing practical robotics. Though iRobot is probably best known for the Roomba vacuum, it also produces tactical mobile robots for defence, including the Packbot and the 710, which were used to collect data and determine radiation and temperature levels inside the Fukushima nuclear plant after a tsunami caused a near-meltdown there in 2011.
