Real RoboCop: Dubai’s Police Force is Getting Android Reinforcements!

Couple of days ago, at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX), Dubai’s annual computer and electronic trade show, a android or humanoid or robo police officer was witnessed by the audience working as the fellow cops. Dubai known for its exquisite money and technological advances, so a Real-life RoboCop was actually pretty anticipated!

Dubai Police Robot

The Robocop was presented to Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai. The prototype can get familiar with faces with a face detection application and is equipped with a touchscreen tablet which can be used to report a crime and process fines for traffic violations and of course get some tricks going on with him! Best of all, — a feat other existing police robots can’ really do since they lack the hands to do so.

It can salute and shake hands!

As the robots become better and better, and with AI developing faster than a growing child, it seems inevitable that these be put to good use, better indeed. What’s better than having these serve and protect? Well, obviously we get reminded of The Terminator every time we look at them, but then again, rather than fear what may be — that these turn against us — let’s first appreciate the help robots can provide for us. Right?
