    Well, who'd have thought this would happen?






    It also seems they are now for sale commercially, and one web site I saw suggested they cost $75,000. So who's going to buy one?

    Wait until Rolex and GS have versions. That'll be a fun thread.

    Digidog is an awful name. It should be something that highlights the dystopian rise of AI.

    Maybe CyberK9.

    Sounds good but criminals have found an old but effective way to disable it!

    Possibly safer for the general American populace than its flesh and blood counterpart.

    Its much like self driving cars , all delusions about the value of the human touch swiftly evaporate given the actual real world messy scenarios that normally play out.

    It can pull you over for doing nothing , make you wait while it checks whether you own your own car , lie and intimidate you to give it information you donít have to and shoot you in the head if you complain and youíre not white ... basically everything the human equivalent does
