Take command of Japan’s T-34 robocop from your Nokia

Well, maybe not your Nokia phone, but definitely ‘a’ mobile handset. Have a read of this piece from BBC News:

Two Japanese companies have unveiled a security robot that can be commanded from a mobile phone to hurl a net that traps suspected intruders.

The prototype T-34 was developed jointly by robot firm Tmsuk Co and security firm Alacom Co.

It moves at up to 10km/h (6mph), and can be controlled by someone seeing real-time images on a mobile phone.

That has to be one of the best ‘mobile applications’ I’ve seen in a while 😉

I’ll have two please.
