Forget security robots! Now you can have a robotic dragon guard your house. Tmsuk Co. builds the Banryu guard robot which in the words of company president Yoichi Takamoto, "is 90 centimeters tall, weighs 35 kilograms and is actually quite scary."
Banryu has 50 sensors that allow it to monitor a broad spectrum of changes in its environment including home or office invasion and environmental dangers like fires. In the event of trouble Banryu is capable of alerting it�s owner by making a cell phone call.
