Samsung now makes guns and butter. The company will produce sentry robot guns that will be stationed along the Korean Demilitarized Zone. The SGR-A1, which was funded by the South Korean government, will make its debut along the most exciting border in the world sometime this year. The sentry gun uses a system of cameras and special software to differentiate between actual, evil North Koreans and harmless visitors and local fauna. It’s mainly going to be used as a first line of defense — a warning, if you will — rather than as a full-on death weapon.

See, something like this would have made CES a little more exciting.
