In 2006, Kipro was launched by Sejong Robotics of South Korea. This humanoid robot was designed to be a security guard robot, capable of providing mobile video surveillance.
The creators of Kipro also made it capable of firing a burglar-catching net to immobilize thieves. The controls of the robot are dependent on its remote control. Simple movements like swinging its arms back and forth were also incorporated in its design. It could well be considered as a telepresence robot, since it has a pan-tilt camera on its head and a large video screen.
