Treasure hunting robot

This is a neat, it’s like a Roomba and a metal detector had a kid…

A REMOTE controlled metal detector built by a Wiltshire man could revolutionise the art of treasure hunting. Resembling something from the TV show Robot Wars, the invention, devised by John Corney, of Corsley Heath, can climb over footballs and has an on-board camera to show its controller where it is going. Mr Corney, 50, who is qualified in remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) control, has found hundreds of old coins and medieval artifacts with his invention.
