C.R.A.B. – Cybernetic Remote Autonomous Barricade

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’d like to see these things roam around my home town. Somehow, it reminds me of the ED-209 droid that went defective early in the first Robocop movie.

Policing has been revolutionised with the introduction of the C.R.A.B. robotic sentry system, due to soon be trialled live on the streets of London, England.

The advanced robotics technology behind the C.R.A.B.’s artificial intelligence have been secretly developed over the past 12 years as a joint venture between weapons manufacturer Dalton/Stanley and megacorporation Omni Consumer Products.

The results of their historical collaboration has been to produce the most advanced robotic defence system ever constructed, featuring next-generation weaponry and armour protection. The C.R.A.B. is set to pave the way for all future Police and Military automaton technology from here onwards, and will be found on patrol in the public domain very soon.

  1. Oh no ! That thing is scary and probably will be the foot soldiers for the robot army. The best part is they will be tested in my home city, I guess I am gonna die then…

  3. Not that worrying tbh; if that's intended for controlling a mob of remotely intelligent people my money's on the people if they have the foresight to do a bit of preparing beforehand.

  5. Anacronym fail. Shouldn't it be “C.R.A.B. – Cybernetic Remote Autonomous Barricade”? ;)

  7. Maybe a teaser for a new game coming? Perhaps a new movie?

    OCP was fictious, as is Dalton/Stanley.

  9. Is it just me, or do they look like a pumped up version of the "I don't hate you" automated turrents in Portal?
