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.

CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
