CNET's Rich DeMuro got invited to a special preview today. Not a gamer, he was still game...and he took a look and leveled a few poorly aimed shots on the PS3. The rest of us won't get our hands on one until Nov. 17.
Is this a real RoboCop?
The K5 robot, developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Knightscope, is designed to be a surveillance robot for law enforcement, private security firms, schools and anything else looking for an extra set of eyes and ears on the ground. The 5-foot, 300-pound robot can roam autonomously, sending back real time data about an area with technology that does facial recognition, lidar mapping and 360-degree video. CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
