Microsoft testing Knightscope security robots | ExtremeTech


curated by | November 21, 2014

Microsoft has become one of the first companies to deploy autonomous robot security guards. Dubbed the K5, this roughly human-sized 300-pound (136 kg) robot is equipped with enough cameras, sensors, and alarms that it can replace most human security patrols — but fortunately, despite looking like a Dalek from the Doctor Who universe, it is not equipped with a ray gun or any other method for harming or detaining humans.
