South Korea Builds Robot Prison Guards

In order to control its population of rebellious human prisoners, South Korea's Ministry of Justice plans to test robot prison guards:

The robots are designed to patrol the corridors of corrective institutions, monitoring conditions inside the cells. If they detect sudden or unusual activity such as violent behavior they alert human guards.

The government should keep in mind that, with rising energy prices around the world, such a program could be expensive to maintain. There are, however, alternative energy sources.
