Japanese Develop "Robocop" T-34

A joint effort between two Japanese firms has led to the development of the T-34, a robot capable of launching a web to trap intruders. One of the companies is Tmsuk Co, a robotics firm; the other is security firm, Alacom Co.

The prototype T-34 moves at just over 5 mph and can be controlled by someone viewing streaming images transmitted by a mobile phone. It moves on wheels and its sensors detect movement.
