Samsung Granted RoboCop Patent

Samsung just received confirmation for a patent that describes an unmanned automatic shooting mechanism that is designed to support and replace security forces in locations such as airports, harbors, and nuclear power plants. Samsung fuels the 2011 IT patent frenzy with 151 patents granted in the second week of the year. One of them was particularly interesting and somewhat reminiscent of the automated “enforcement droid” in the 1990 movie RoboCop 2. The patent is introduced as “Automatic shooting mechanism and robot having the same” which outlines a cyborg-like shooting robot that, however, is not immediately mobile like the cyborg in the movie. Apart from that, which could be fixed with a mobile base, the device use front and back ultra-low brightness cameras that are employed for aerial monitoring, target identification, tracking and “accurate” shooting in short and long ranges. Additionally, Samsung has integrated image recognition technology, image processing and storing technology, voice recognition technology, servo technology, image tracking technology, and system control technology.
