    Hmm. Did it have a "Tesla" nameplate attached?

    And air quality sensors? So if you have had too many bean burritos at the food court then this short stack is going to turn you in? Or run you over?

    Why are malls being patrolled by Daleks?

    I am going to guess that since in Kalifornia, they can't unionize (well, at least yet). I read that the businesses basically lease the robots @ about $6.25 an hour. What's the minimum wage in Kalifornia now? About $86.00?

    Looks like they cloned and fattened up R2D2.

    Well, from reading up on that model, only if it's over a flat, even surface. ;)

    A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. -Asimov's Laws

    i wonder if Knightscope is a subsidiary of Cyberdyne Systems

    Something like that.

    I'm pretty sure they'll be raising it again soon regardless.

    Those don't apply if they are any type of LEO or security robots.

    I think it's more of a "security monitor" than it is a "security robot".
