Web Slinging Robocop Introduced

Japanese robitics firm Tmsuk Co has partnered with security company Alacom Co to introduce a prototype security robot known as T-34. The little guy has wheels to propel itself at upto 10km/h (6mph) and sensors to detect intruders. Once a sensor is activated a human can control the robot with the help of real-time images on a mobile phone. "Security sensors often set off false alarms but examining the location with the robot will lead to more efficient operations," said a statement from the companies. Once an intruder is spotted the robot has the capability to subdue them by using a hurled net.
