|Ta-da...wait, what is that, an ATM?|
|So like, reboot Robocop.|
|I sincerely hope that the taser is activated|
by rapidly tapping the punch button.
AnBot is also equipped with a robotic arm that can grasp a suspect's leg and hold them until they can be apprehended which I'm going to have to call bullshit on. Robots are just not good at grabbing things, it's a stereotype I know, but stereotypes often have a basis in fact. If you've ever played the grabber machine at an arcade, you know what I mean.

patiently waiting for AnBot's operator to properly line up the grabber arm.
|To be clear, AmBot's most useful|
feature is its ability to call the real cops.
|"C'mon everyone, let's crap all over it!"|
Thought so. Sure, AnBot would be completely useless should a suspect flee up a flight of stairs or over uneven terrain and yeah, a couple of drunk college kids could easily shove it over rendering it immobile but...sorry, forgot where I was going.
|Researchers in Japan meanwhile are lightyears ahead of AnBot with RoBear,|
an eldercare robot that uses an innovative cuddly design to mitigate the crushing
guilt you should feel for pawning off your elderly relatives onto a robot bear.
