T-34 Detects and Protects

T-34 is a new security bot that has been equipped with sound sensors and infrared heat to detect intruders within 5 meters. Once it does, the robot sends a video feed to the user's cell phone. Its owner must have a NTT Docomo FOMO phone to communicate by pushing keys to send instructions or speak to the intruder via T-34's loudspeaker. Weighing 12kg and at a size of 60 x 52 x 60 cm, the bot has a speed of about 10km/h and can, when prompted, launch its built-in net. Judging from the video, we think this would probably be a better weapon against small mammals and rodents rather than large humans. Once the prototype is released, it will be available for about ¥500,000 yen (~$5,570.00.)
