Not to be outdone in the brave new world of Evil Robot Science, the students of Taiwan University display their astoundingly shrewd entry into the human demolition derby. They have crafted a Robot Tour Guide, whom we here at Evil Robot News have no doubt, will indeed guide you with alarming efficiency, to your own merciless doom!

It serrupticiously maps and records it's surroundings. One day it will make certain that our most treasured and precious spaces, formerly the places of our warm and close held memories, will become meticulously gridded combat zones in the coming robot wars; a crucial morale advantage...
