A start-up company in Korea (KornTech) has made a breakthrough - they've created a very cool robot that can recognize faces. The robot uses face recognition technology. It has real value as a security measure since it can quickly identify an intruder by quickly scanning its database, and then issue a security breach alert. The robot's name is Rogun.

Implications - The robotic industry is booming and businesses that successfully embrace this brave new world (rather than run from it) are sure to recruit more consumers. Advanced facial recognition robots, portable e-readers and MP3 players embedded in furniture are all examples of how the face of technology is ever-evolving.
