Korea Ups the Ante in Future Robot Wars With Japan


Things are shaping up for an eventual Korea vs. Japan robot wars in the next 20 to 30 years, and Korea is getting ready with a robot that keeps your home safe. Unlike previous robots, this one from KornTech (snicker, snicker) is named Rogun
and has high-end face tracking software, which means it can both
recognize and track your kids by turning its head to face you no matter
where you move.

Also, Rogun will use that same facial recognition to detect if
strangers visit, and will call you on your phone if you're out. If
you've left your kids at home, it can monitor them, and will stream
updates to you over the Internet as well. Plus, there's a 7-inch LCD
monitor in its chest so kids can interact with it. If you want one, be
prepared to shell out more than $100,000 for the privilege.
