One of my customer is buiding military "Suicide Robots". No joke! Let me explain:

 

The Baltic Sea is still full of mines from worldwar II. When they've spotted one, they send one of the "Suicide Bots" (in reality a remote-controlled small submarine) with some Semtex and the mine is blown. So are the two PSoCs in it. The reason for this way to work is the price: a submarine with capabilities to drop the semtex and return is somewhat 10 times higher and they survive about 5 missions until worn-out.
