Sentry Bot

We’ve brought you the good and the bad, now here’s the really ugly of robotics. Samsung, in cooperation with Korea University, has developed a machine gun-wielding Sentry Robot. With two zoomable cameras (one for daylight and one for infrared nighttime usage), they claim that it can detect the difference between humans, trees, and a machine gun. But can the bots tell the difference between civilians and bad guys?

They also have rather pleasant sounding voices that warn the intruder to surrender before getting shot. Going on sale for $200,000 sometime next year, plans are to disperse them between the borders of North and South Korea.
