Salon is running a story on a robot called the Afghan Explorer. Created by Chris Csikszentmihályi, director of the MIT Media Lab's Computing Culture Group, Afghan Explorer is part autonomous robot, part teleoperated vehicle, and part mobile teleconferencing unit. The robot would act as a reporter for the news media in areas like the Middle East which are often too dangerous for human reporters. It could interview people and transmit sound and video of events taking place.
