Lots of expensive parts on that dog.  The lidar alone is worth a couple grand.  The LiPo probably another $500, easy.  Lots of brushless motors and ESCs, too.

It would be a real shame if something happened to all that.

I vaguely remember getting that one time on a totally innocuous comment.  Can't remember exactly what I had written, but I do remember it seemed like a sillly/pointless thing to filter and completely changed the meaning of my comment (unlike how the obscenity filters).  Wonder what the story behind it is.

This is super scary.


Almost no law professors* in the USA or Canada have any ability to discuss this stuff, but quite a few claim to. That is also scary. We are so farked as law school crank out a generation of lawyers entirely unequipped to even discuss cybernetics and securitization.


*None at the Ivies, and very few overall. They're all marginalized as kooks, because law schools are badly run.

No good comes from persistent surveillance, except the government thinks being able to crush an individual on a whim counts as "good".

I am thinking the whole thing repurposed would be more valuable than the parts alone.

No kidding.
$75,000 for a base model, then all the lidar knick knacks, and likely a PA unit. Plus two or three cops to monitor the feed, and another following it around to replace its batteries every 90 minutes.
Stupid idea.
And it's especially dumb considering the recent MSCHF shock art; where it had a paint ball gun attached to it.
Nothing is subtle when it comes to cops.

maram500: *At this point, the NYPD is mostly a self-styled military. And that pisses *me* off.


They are a self-styled independent nation-state. They have a spy agency that sends intelligence agents to spy on people and agencies outside their jurisdiction and even outside the country, they have their own military ground and air assets up to and including farking air-to-air and air-to ground missiles, and they exert almost complete control of the local government by proxy.
All they are missing is nukes, and we would have another North Korea.

Friendly reminder, the battery is in the "chest" area just behind the front legs.  It's not protected and removes easily.  Keep clear of the legs, damned stepper motors have some torque so you don't want to get your sleeve caught in there.

Someone better f*cking junk that thing the second they see it, and everyone better form a blockade between the police and the hero that junks it so they can't get arrested.

If they do get arrested, that jury better be nullified.

The second we go down this road is the second we die as a society.
