Tired of the Japanese monopolizing the field of Awesome Robot Science (I minored in that in college), two German companies have jointly developed a robot to help make the FIFA 2006 World Cup safe for all hooligans in attendance. Besides looking stylish with its military-green finish and its sharp treads, this bad boy can even climb stairs and examine suspicious objects. Unfortunately, he's not autonomous and takes orders from a meat-bag on a Laptop.

You know what Germany? The US already made a robot that looks just like this in the 80s and even made two blockbuster movies out of it. Despite Steve Guttenberg only being in first one, our robot could talk. Can yours talk?
