This week news broke of a Japanese technology company that has launched a prototype robot for the home, designed to immobilise intruders by entangling them in a Robocop style net.
The security robot can be commanded from a user’s mobile phone to capture unwanted intruders. The prototype robot can be controlled using images that are streamed in real time to the user’s mobile phone.
The prototype T-34 that was revealed this week can move at up to 6 MPH, and is equipped with sensors that can detect the movement of intruders. When activated the robot then calls the users mobile to alert them of the intrusion.
“Security sensors often set off false alarms but examining the location with the robot will lead to more efficient operations,” – Tmsuk Co and security firm Alacom Co.
Seems a rather nifty way of detecting intruders in your home when you are not there that is for sure, I do however feel that any able bodied intruder would be able to outrun the robot at a mere 6MPH.
Perhaps another 30 BHP and we will be there.
