It Takes Two To Make A Thing Work Right

Whoa, whoa. Hold up. The title of this post could be seen as deceptive. I swear, these are not my intentions.

ROMP: Shoots Paintballs and Leaves The Scene

I wish my father had bought me a ROMP as a child. The Remotely Operated Mobile Platform, ROMP for short, is a remote control vehicle designed for military use. It can shoot stuff with a paintball gun, listen in on conversations, blow up IEDs and so much more. Think of it as a Radio Shack R/C car jacked up on ...
