The “world’s first operational Robocop” has been unveiled in Dubai as part of the emirate’s planned robot police force. Robocop started work on Sunday and is already making a name for itself. At 5ft 5in tall and weighing 100kg, it can speak six languages and is designed to read facial expressions. It can also perform a highly dignified military salute, as demonstrated above. It had an easy start to working life, being unveiled at the three-day long Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC). But at the end of the Expo, it will be released into the wider world and tackle real life issues. The machine has a built-in tablet so people can use it pay fines or report crimes, and can also transmit and receive messages from police headquarters.
