The "Microrobot" may sound like a cute, tiny mech, but you should probably think twice before picking on it. Hint: it'll probably respond by shooting you.
The Microrobot is a driverless patrol vehicle designed to guard the Korean Demilitarized Zone. Though the Microrobot lacks a human onboard, the fear of a mishap is reduced as the rover is controlled entirely by an operator who uses its stereo and Infrared cameras to see, as well as lamp-light and sonic waves to detect obstacles. Best of all, the bot is as easy on power demands as it is on friendly human life, running off a rechargeable lithium battery.
We're sad to see bots getting the short end of the stick, but, if war must be waged, it beats people blowing each other up.
