Japan has always been the leader in robot technology, coming up with ingenious ways to use robots (often quite unnecessarily), in our daily lives. Past robot ideas include: PaPeRo, a robot that has the ability to interact with people and also perform autonomous actions; it’s newer version, PaPe-Jiro, a comedian robot; or the Actroid, a humanoid robot (weird).

Koreans are, more than ever, competing in the robot market and have come up with a great idea to prevent injuries from happening in prisons with their robot prison guard. One can only hope that prisoners won’t get too annoyed during the trial period while the engineers work out the tweaks.
