A new Korean robot venture introduces a child size humanoid robot named Rogun.

Rogun is Korea's first humanoid that recognizes people through embedded cameras and face-tracking software.

"Rogun is capable of guarding homes around the clock; the camera-eyed robot will give a warning to its owner via cell phone when strangers visit an empty house.'' says KornTech CEO Lee Dong-hwan. Rogun can be controlled via mobile phone and the Internet. It can transmit live video from the house to a mobile phone. Kids can watch videos on the robot's 7 inch screen.
KornTech builds Rogun currently only on special order. Pricing is beyond $100,000. The robot venture targets a 5k price-tag in the near future.
