If the machines are truly going to take over the Earth, they have a ways to go. That's what cops in the Mountain View area of Silicon Valley learned on April 19 when they arrested an apparently drunk man for kicking over a limbless security robot. Jason Sylvain, 41, stands accused of being a robocidal maniac after assaulting the conical droid as it patrolled a parking lot, according to NBC Bay Area. Robo cop: The robots are five feet tall, weigh 300lbs, and can recognize known shoplifters and photograph car license plates. Sylvain jumped the K5-model robot outside the offices of its manufacturers, Knightscope, near the corner of Terra Bella and Linda Vista Avenue, police said.
