This robot has a built-in speaker and microphone, which means that guards control center can communicate with the prisoners, this will solve many problems without personal contact, saving time and effort on both sides. The machine has a height of about 150 cm and weight 70-80 kg. The first to be built just three copies of this robot, they will be placed in jail in Pohang, the test will take about a month, and they start around March next year. At the end of the experiment the state Department of Justice will decide on future projects.

Robotics Short Story

The word robotics was derived from the word robot, which was introduced to the public by Czech writer Karel Čapek in his play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), which premiered in 1921.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word robotics was first used in print by Isaac Asimov, in his science fiction short story "Liar!", published in May 1941 in Astounding Science Fiction. Asimov was unaware that he was coining the term; since the science and technology of electrical devices is electronics, he assumed robotics already referred to the science and technology of robots. In some of Asimov's other works, he states that the first use of the word robotics was in his short story Runaround (Astounding Science Fiction, March 1942). However, the word robotics appears in "Liar!"
