"The gist of this project is to transform the current guard and observation mission on fronts conducted by soldiers into a robot system," said Shin Hyun-don, a South Korean defense ministry spokesman, in an interview with The Korea Times. "We will comprehensively review the requirements of operational capability before implementing it."
Are the robots really there? Or can they be bought for the widely reported price for US$ 200'000? Not sure.
Samsung has taken all infos on the robot offline. Nevertheless, their patent and their promo video (below) and hundreds of news articles remain in the public domain.
