(VentureBeat) The robotics industry recently debuted security models. A few months ago China came out with its Anbot, which can taser people and be used for riot control. South Korea already uses mobile robot guards in its prisons. Even in San Francisco, you can rent out robot guards to protect your businesses and property. However, the rent-a-robot company, Knightscope, recently came under fire for accidentally running over a toddler at the Stanford Shopping Center.
The age of near-total robot security protection will likely be here in less than a decade. Executives, public figures, and presidential candidates worry about personal safety. Millions of people might want a robot protecting them and their family.
