Microsoft's robot security guards

* microsoft-robot-security.jpgRobots are increasingly replacing humans in a variety of mundane tasks, like bolting a car together or making lollipops, but now they are moving into the security business.

Microsoft recently installed a fleet of 5-feet-tall, 300-pound robots to protect its Silicon Valley campus. The robots are packed with HD security cameras and sensors to take in their organic, protein-based surroundings. There's also an artificial intelligence on board that can sound alarms when the robot notices something awry. It can also read licence plates and cross-reference them to see if they're stolen.
