Look at that picture. Can you tell which one's the humanoid robot? That was a trick question -- those are all real people. Jesus, stop being so paranoid.
Two robots with surveillance, tracking, firing and voice recognition systems were integrated into a single unit, a defence ministry spokesman said.

Pfft, why even bother trying to identify the intruder? Intruders, by nature, are bad. Otherwise they'd be guests. No, when it comes to homeland (and apartment) security, I say shoot first and dispose of evidence later. Isn't that right, mysterious blood stain by the door?! (I got high and forgot I ordered pizza)
