Microsoft's Familiar New Security Guards Are Exterminating Trespassers

Microsoft just deployed a new robotic security robot, the K5.

Microsoft's Silicon Valley campus was being policed last week by five of these roughly human-sized 300-pound (136 kg) robots, each equipped with enough cameras, sensors, artificial intelligence, and alarms that they can replace most human security patrols.
But who knows how long until they teach themselves how to craft weaponry. We've all seen enough movies to know what "artificial intelligence" actually means.
