A $19,000 robotic triceratops that patrols your house taking pictures of would-be burglars. What could be better? Ever since 'The Land Before Time', triceratops has been my favorite dinosaur, and now I can have one... as soon as I have $19,000. According to reports:
"The Banryu bots were designed to patrol homes and photograph and would-be intruders using a camera installed in their snouts, but their plodding pace (3 meters a minute) made them questionably useful. TMSUK later created a zippier, 15-meter-per-minute Banryu model (that could also detect carbon monoxide leaks), but sadly the whole "cybernetic dinosaur home security" trend never really took off."
I just don't know if I want to live in a society that does not appreciate Robotic danger-sensing dinosaurs.
