Killer robot guards in the works?

We all love robots. Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I love robots. They make life much easier, or they try to dominate the world. Here's one that I could see walking that fine line. And you definitely wouldn't want one of these guys at your back.

These are the kinds of security robots that you see in cool sci-fi movies. From the looks of it, you would think that it was armed to the teeth with lasers and explosive rockets. However, they will likely be more harmless than that. It is believed that they will probably have no more than water cannons and tear gas guns.

These are currently being developed as a collaboration between South Korea and Samsung. No word when they will start seeing action.
