Samsung has partnered with Korea University to develop a machine-gun equipped sentry robot, which consists of “two cameras: one for day-time and one for infrared night vision, zooming capabilities, a speaker for notifying the intruder, sophisticated pattern recognition to detect the difference between humans/trees, and a 5.5mm machine-gun.”

One step closer to Robocop and Skynet!

"sophisticated pattern recognition to detect the difference between humans/trees"

I reckon this must be a crucial feature for some poster here!

The South Korean government plans to deploy these friendly reminders on the border between South and North Korea, to further ease relations between the countries :lol:

I'd be nervous about a machine gun yielding robot one call "sophiticated" because it stands a decent chance to tell the difference between a tree and a human

Can it tell the difference between a muslim and a christian? Otherwise it's no use.

Just need to teach it to look for turbans on the head and bombs strapped to the chest. Then it's a genuine muslim detector.

Sikhs wear turbans not muslims.

Never can be sure about that. We'll have to target both.

Plus, Marge Simpson will probably be collateral damage.

If we carry on with this punning we're not going to be very poplar - perhaps it's time we stopped coppicing around...
