Secom robot

Remember Secom's Robot X robot security sentry? The one that goes all crazy on people and rams at them really fast and shoots smoke and fires blinding lights? Well, looks like they've integrated RFID into the bot, so the Robot X can be used to guard Japan's precious Secom RFID-tagged youth. Say goodbye to your days of heady power as hall monitors, kids—like many jobs in the real world, a robots going to do what you do, but better.
