Nerd News: Military Robots & Gamer Controls

I noticed in this VOD that the controllers for the robots looked like they came from Gaming Consoles, and I can't help but wonder if that is because the designers felt users would be familiar with them, that the designers were used to them, or that they are actually an efficient UI for military robots?

For the two people that read my blog that don't know what console controllers look like here are links to Xbox controller and PS3 controller.

iRobot Military Robot VOD from TechnoBuffalo.  Note, can't find current link to iRobot military line, looks like they might have removed that from public view after getting contract with US military.
