Really interesting to see a combination of hardware and tackling really legit issues. I am quite interested in "exactly" what it actually does but conceptually its quite cool. I think the "how it works" could be more clear. Does it just send its alerts to law enforcement? or does it make a ton of noise and flash lights? Or are we talking concealed tranquilizer darts?" Either way, the site is a little confusing on those details but I guess its just more because I am curious. Also, initially a read it as "Anonymous robots..."

I imagine the size, shape, and locomotion system are so that it can patrol/see roughly the same places a human can, but it looks vulnerable to being tipped over. Maybe it's for indoors/lower risk deployments?
