RoboCop IRL?: Meet South Korea's New Robotic Prison Guard

robot 2012_04_12

So, this is the scariest thing we've heard about all day. ...

Introducing the new South Korean robotic prison guard (photo, above)!

He's fully equipped with 3D cameras and software designed to gauge a prisoner's emotional state -- which basically means these things are ready to take over the world.

The thought behind this, apparently, is that someday we'll be able to replace prison guards with robots. Now, this seems like it could be a cool idea, but we've seen "I, Robot" one too many times to really be OK with that plan.

Glittarazzi is voting to stop the imminent Robopocalypse now, please.
