World’s First Robocop Ready To Serve The Public Trust, But Not In Detroit
Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law. That was the directives of the law enforcement cyborg in the movie RoboCop. Well, life is imitating art because the world’s first operation Robocop went into service on Sunday in Dubai.
The Robocop in IRL will not be armed with an Auto 9 handgun, but rather a preprogrammed desire to help the citizens and tourists of Dubai.
The Robocop stands at five feet and five inches tall and weighs 220 pounds and people can use the law enforcement robot to pay fines, report crimes, plus residents can also transmit and receive messages from police headquarters.
“He can chat and interact, respond to public queries, shake hands and offer a military salute,” Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services with the Dubai Police told the Mirror.
“With an aim to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets, the Robocop is the latest smart addition to the force and has been designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels,” he added.
