The RIBOGU Q guard robot authenticates faces -- the rest you can imagine

Meet the RIBOGU Q guard robot with "face authentication technology" -- a world's first with such a lethal combination. Developed by Japan's ALSOK, the robot snaps photos of the filthy human stench in the vicinity in order to identify "terrorists, wanted fugitives" and anyone else on the corporate or government "blacklist." Presumably (they don't say), RIBOGU Q juices any identified villains with those wee, Tyrannosaurus arms. Of course, the ability to recognize specific faces is obvious overkill -- we know the real intent is to pare back the blacklist criteria to: "has a face."
