Security robot dubbed ‘new sheriff in town’

Postby ferri » Jul 18th, 2017, 3:09 pm

:cry:

Officials at a Washington, D.C., office building patrolled by a security robot they are investigating after workers reported the robot “drowned itself.”
MRP Realty announced last week there was a “new sheriff in town,” namely a K5 security robot developed by Silicon Valley startup Knightscope, but Bilal Farooqui, a worker at the office complex, tweeted a photo Monday revealing the mechanical guard had met with a watery end.

Yes. I think they ruled it a suicide. There's even pictures of scene. *sniff* [icon_lol2.gif]

You have 20 seconds to comply.
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Politics without principle. Your bias suits you.

Was the robot's name "Chappie"?

It was probably designed by McAfee. [icon_lol2.gif]

No I meant McAfee because I feel it's the worst security software ever created or imposed upon users.

It is great if your goal is to slow down your computer. :biggrin:

Employee goes out for lunch with their security chip card hanging on a lanyard around their neck. Enjoys a Big Mac, but in the process slops "special sauce" on their chip card.

Not realizing this, employee returns to work. Security robot approaches, asks for security card to be inserted in reader. Special sauce gums up reader and causes a short.

Security robot responds "terrorist alert", deploys taser on maximum voltage...
