We already mentioned that the LG VX8700 would be available starting today from Verizon, but hey, everyone needs a reminder right? Just to refresh your memory, this shiny new multimedia successor to the VX8600 has a 2.0-megapixel camera, a music player, a video recorder, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth, EV-DO, and access to all the Verizon V Cast goodies like V Cast Video and V Cast Music. It'll cost you $179.99 after a two-year service agreement and a $50 rebate.
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.
