During credit crunch time it seems that even more jobs might be in jeopardy after the Guard Robot D1 has been hired at a mall in Japan.

The Guard Robot D1 works during the day as a mall guide with a display screen that communicates (words and voice) in English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. At night, the Guard Robot D1 watches carefully over his domain and alerts the authorities in the situation that something goes wrong.

The two-in-one Guard Robot D1 could get rid of those unattractive mall maps and those unattra… I mean, security guards.
