Helen Grenier | CyPhy Works

Why she’s important: Grenier spearheaded the creation and deployment of PackBots who fought with our troops and the mega-hit Roomba Vacuuming Robot. Now she’s on her second act, a startup for flying robots.

Watch for: Grenier’s name being spoken in the same breath as drones, which Congress may deem legal by 2015. With lawmarkers considering commercial use of flying robots, CyPhy might become a household name.
