SK Telecom's guardbot

SK telecom guard botWe're not used to cellphone companies coming out with robots (at least not over here), but South Korea's biggest carrier, SK Telecom, just introduced a new security bot which they'll start selling this summer. The robot, which is actually built by Mositech, can detect a fire, gas leak, or "suspicious" activity and automatically a beam a message (with photos) to your cellphone. The best part: it only costs $850, or a fraction of what other guard robots on the market like the Banryu retail for.
