From a PR Newswire story about the iRobot Corporation multi-purpose domestic robot, which can be controlled through a web browser from anywhere in the world: The iRobot-LE is powered by iRobot Aware Robot Control Software running on a Pentium II class processor with an Apache-SSL web server and Linux Operating System. Priced about the same as a high-end notebook computer, the iRobot-LE is a fully functional mobile computer.
