FBI goes hi-tech in Obama’s inauguration
FBI has showcased pretty great hi-tech gear in Obama’s inaugural ceremonies as the first black president of the United States of America. Some really advance technologies have been photographed during the event like the FBI Bomb Technicians vehicle with a bomb disposal robot on alert.
Other photos include a hi-tech command center, a mine-proof armored vehicle, evidence gathering response vehicle. One that’s a bit more interesting was bomb containment/disposal concoction that is said to be able to withstand a blast of a bomb (wonder how much TNT we are talking about).
Don’t know if we’d ever need of them in the Philippines, much less afford them but we do have our home grown hi-tech bomb disposal robot courtesy of Mapua engineers. You can have a look at the other photos of FBI gear at New Scientist.
