GuardBot, A Robotic Sphere Surveillance System That 'Can Roll On Any Terrain'

June 19, 2018

This is a video demonstration of GuardBot, a robotic rolling ball surveillance system that can allegedly tackle any terrain (including sand, snow and water -- but what about lava?). GuardBots will be available in a variety of sizes from 5-inches to 7-feet in diameter and cost up to $100,000. In addition to Big Brothering, it's developers also hope "to develop it as a companion bot for patients with dementia and for sports broadcasting." Me? I'm hoping they add a couple machine gun turrets to the sides and get this robot apocalypse party started already. I'm tired of prepping, I'm ready to apply my training to real-life robot battle. "There's no way humanity is ready for a full-scale robot war." I know. "Wait -- what are you saying?!" As long as they don't hurt the animals.

Keep going for a couple more shots (including trying to find its golf ball and taking a bath) and a video of GuardBots in action.

Thanks to Draco Basileus, who agrees the future is coming whether we want it to or not.

    Call Patrick McGoohan

    The picture of it in the desert reminded me of the 2010 movie 'Rubber', about an abandoned tire that gains sentience and goes on a killing spree. Much like this thing'll do...

  • paperboy

    Nerds, quit helping our future robot overlords (robolords).

  • Chaz Gomez

    They need to make these at least 6' tall and white... we'll call them Rovers... some of you will know what I'm talking about... Be seeing you...

  • Douchy McDouche

    For an extra $50,000 you can upgrade your GuardBot to DeathBot.

    Looks like it's ribbed (and studded) for her pleasure. Is it selfish that I sometimes turn ribbed condoms inside out before I put them on? I mean - what about MY pleasure?

  • Fartbutt

    Yes, that's racist. You're supposed to tie the condom around the trunk of the penis, put a warm towel on it and smack it with some sand. Then it's like a medium sandpaper type feeling. Good for the skin

    What the hell was that?!? OMG

  • Have you never seen The Prisoner?

  • Jenness

    No, but now I want to.

  • Richard Janicek

    A nightmare :0

  • GeneralDisorder

    This just like any other robot balls looks like it could use a good swift kick.

  • Bling Nye

    Curious if it could handle a pair of chock blocks.

  • The_Wretched

    BB8 meets the prisoner meets gantz meets HappyFunBall.

  • Goddamn, why are we so intent on creating our own demise? "New features include fear smelling receptors, and a thirst for human flesh!"

  • Mark

    They have already equipped drones with guns and infra red....so we can be hunted in the woods. Now these things!
    I still bet I can out pace it in a paddle equipped swan boat. It won't be pretty but I'll get away dammit!

  • KingCraigers

    But does it Stair?
