If you were to be pulled over while driving and then approached by a robot cop, you'd probably wonder if you really are too drunk to drive (even if you don't drink). This video from SRI International introduces their robotic police officer, who is actually an extension of a human cop who stays in the police car during the traffic stop. Through the robot, he can video chat with the driver, examine documents, and print out a ticket. It's not quite the badass Peter Weller cyborg we've come to expect from movies. -via Digg
