Recently we've seen a lot of stories about robots as couriers. Google, Amazon and other corporate entities have expressed interest in prototyping and experimenting with robotic and drone delivery. Turns out, expectedly, everybody is getting in on the game.

We are going to see the "courier space" for robotic devices expand significantly, and soon. The business, intelligence, science and, let's face it, "prank" spaces are just too tempting to leave unexplored. You think Ashton Kutcher is a douche bag? Wait until you get punked by an evil robot...

What if though, the things that the bonnie wee robot brings are not exactly bowls of free candy?

It seems like not all of Tokyo's robotics engineers are pleased with Prime Minister Abe's statesmanship, surrounding the, quite horrible, "Fukushima problem".




"Japanese authorities have launched an investigation after a small drone reportedly containing traces of radiation was found on the roof of the prime minister’s office, sparking concerns about drones and their possible use for terrorist attacks.

No injuries or damage was [sic] reported from the incident on Wednesday. The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, who is at present in Indonesia, works at the building during the day and commutes from his own private home roughly 15 minutes away.

Police said it was not immediately known who was responsible for the drone."
