Robocop To Become Reality? Injured Cops Can Be Back On The Streets Controlling Robots Using Virtual Reality Headset
US researchers are working on a real-life Robocop who would patrol the streets to combat crime - just like in the film.

Injured policemen or soldiers will be wired up to the ‘PatrolBot’ which will effectively give them mechanical limbs that they have lost whilst in service.

The plan is to make a basic version of Alex Murphy, the fictional policeman in the 1987 hit Robocop, who is turned into a cyber cop after being nearly killed in the line of duty.

The new technology is based on advances in the US military in telerobotics, which is where users are wired up remotely to a robot and given physical feedback to simulate the feeling of being there.

The injured person would use cameras and sensors on the PatrolBot which would be connected to their own body.

They would see using a virtual reality helmet which would make it look like they were peering through the robot’s eyes.

So if a US cop controlling the 'Patrolbot' kills someone, could they blame it on the robot malfunctioning???
