China does patrol-bots too


Would you let this ugly thing patrol your "high-quality residential district", as Babelfish so eloquently puts it? Well that's what the makers of the first Chinese security patrol robot are hoping, with civilian airports, important warehouses, and shopping centers being the specialties of this particular patrol-bot. Like other civilian patrol-bots, and fortunately for thieves and other shady folk, the robot doesn't appear to carry any form of lethal ordinance -- although that's probably to the benefit of casual, innocent bags of meat shoppers too.
