TheFeed has been warning humanity of the imminent takeover of humanity by robotic forces since the early 1970s.

The latest salvo in the war: A Korean robot, Rogun, that recognizes faces, can walk on its own and "perform various functions suitable for a security guard or nanny" such as patrolling your home and calling your cellphone if it recognizes any suspicious behavior.

Insidiously, Rogun is only one meter tall, and looks positively loveable. It comes with a camera you can train on your little ones in order to watch them play and whatnot.

The company behind the product, Korean start-up KornTech, has not commented on whether images of your family and your house's floorplan will be beamed to the massive databases on the robot-controlled satellite currently orbiting the earth, pored over by Leader Unit X443 (pictured) and used to assist in the forceable relocation of all humans to the robots' diamond mines, but we're guessing yes.

The RoGun costs, get this, $100,000, although the company would like the price to get down to a reasonable $5,000.
