    Is anyone else seeing these commercials? The first time I saw it was a few days after the election in November. Then nothing until a couple weeks ago and now I see it a few times a night streaming on Hulu. I don't recall if all the times I've seen their commercial were on Hulu or not.

    What exactly are these roaming police bots supposed to be doing? It says they raised $70 mil over the last decade.
    All I can think is, depending on the locations these things are being dispatched, I hope they are bullet proof.
    I'm not linking their site but it's knightscope dot com

    Reminds of something...

    That looks like a device that has been very cleverly designed to relieve municipalities and large corporations of significant amounts of their discretionary funds. Well played, Knightscope; well played.

    I think they tell people when to restock shelves at Walmart.

    This is what happens when all of your mothers L’Egg pantyhose form a union.

    Besides the obvious rolling nanny cam, I think I'm mostly interested in it's claimed capability as a force multiplying physical deterrent. What does that entail exactly.
