I'm scared, how about you?





Somehow, I think they jumped the gun in deciding to show off this robot's... er... skill.

i think the scariest thing about it is the price, no one's going to be able to afford it unless they're willing to sell every possesion worth protecting and then the robo-cop will end up redundent...

the net doesn't look all that powerfull either unless you got hitin the face and choked through strangulation... i'm guessing it'll either be useless of fatal :?

I think it spraying a jet of mace, or launching a couple Chinese stars might be better than the clearly-ineffective net.

chinese stars, shurikens, or any type of projected blade could cause a fatal wound and not be allowed on the market, then again a little customization never hurt the creator ;)

I wonder if that little robot is bulletproof or not.
