Crime Fighting Robots.

CNBC reports that a silicon valley company has developed a crime-fighting, 300 pound robot, that can predict crime using its ability to see, hear, feel, and smell.  The robot will patrol places like mall parking lots.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

1. Can these things smell beer? Because resembling R2-D2 and patrolling malls sounds like a guaranteed ride in the back of a pick-up to a frat house every time someone puts “Crime Fighting Robot” on the Scavenger Hunt list.

2. Would this robot be a better lead actor for any future Kevin James mall cop movie? Since we think Kevin James can’t feel the difference between a good script and a bad script, we suspect the robot may decline the role. So we’ll just guess yes, it would be a better actor.

3. How will this robot react at the mall to the recent retirement of Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries? Well, if this means turning up the lights, turning down the music, and turning down the self-spraying cologne in stores, we imagine the robot may prevent real shoplifting, instead of asking the model at the door who stole his shirt.
