Ministry of Information and Communications hopes to introduce a series of internet-connected household robots this
October. The bots, according to the Ministry, will be able to perform such household tasks as cleaning, monitoring
homes, reading to children, and ordering pizza via the Internet. The Korean government also plans to roll out robocops
that can pursue suspects, and multi-legged or wheeled combat
within the next five years. The bots will receive most of their commands via a wireless Internet connection,
keeping costs down to as little as $1,000, and allowing a malevolent AI or evil scientist to completely take over the
nation's network of robots at will.
