Talk about a head fake. While the Nintento faithful have been waiting for any bit of information about the Wii in the United States, the company has apparently been airing a 2.5-minute commercial south of the border that showed up on YouTube, according a weekend post on Digg. After viewing it, we agree with this observation: Does anyone ever sit down while playing this thing? (See CNET's first-look video of the Wii here.)
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.
