Much like the Robocop of yester-years, this Robotic security guard promises to keep you safe from all sorts of anti-social elements and then some. The manufacturers promise that it can warn intruders to surrender before shooting and is smart enough to recognise human beings from everything else that moves. The robot uses pattern recognition technology for this effect.
If you think its fun, the $300,000 even get you a remote control and a touch screen which allow you to control the robot (as well as the shooting). Luckily for the general populace, you can choose to shoot paint balls, foam gas or even tear gas depending on how pissed you are.
The system uses twin optical and infrared sensors to identify targets from 2.5 miles in daylight and around half that distance at night. It has a microphone and speakers
so that passwords can be exchanged. If the password is not accepted the robot can either sound an alarm or fire at the target.
If that sounds too much like a futuristic science fiction movie to you ; then all I get to say is that welcome to the future. For as with all things tech, its merely going to be a matter of time before these toys are affordable to every Tom , Dick and Harry.
