Security robots – daft but dangerous

I saw this video of the Tmsuk T-34 Security Robot on robots.net. which can throw a net over a person. OK, OK, it is very small, not very fast and the net doesn’t look exactly dangerous. However, I think this is a glimpse of the future. The fact that this thing appears so daft and safe will make it acceptable to the public and law makers while big corporations may realise that a few of these things can be used to automatically hassle intruders while human guards are summoned.
Now doubt that, once they’re in regular use and appearing on TV the manufacturer (TMSUK and Alacom Co., Ltd) will bring out a new version with real speed, strength and firepower.

I wonder about the legality of these things and await the first test case where a passer by is attacked and injured by a robot.
