Segway bomb disposal robot

Leave it to Segway to come up with something like this. It's your basic robot outfitted with a camera and a high-pressure water cannon (not shown in this picture.) The scenario is a suspicious package. The bomb buster trundles up, gets a bead on the package and blasts it with a high-pressure squirt of water that's strong enough to destroy the package and hopefully drown the bomb.
