Lately, Palm's come under a bit of criticism for dragging its heels in the innovation department, and the Palm Foleo fiasco certainly didn't help. However, the company's latest project, the Palm Centro, is looking like a better prospect.

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.
