Scary does not even begin to describe my thoughts on this

Controlling the Kuratas bot is relatively straightforward - movement can be achieved via a smartphone or by using controls within the one-man cockpit. Ingeniously (or weirdly) the guns are activated when the pilot smiles.

It is the perfect means of crowd control by the psychopathic owners of the planet. Smile ≡ Unleash a rain of bullets into the herd of sheeple, and in the sheer pleasure of killing and maiming and dispersing the peons before you know it you'll be completely out of ammo. Then you can grin all the way back to the bank as you cruise along @ 10 km/h in your armoured and anonymous shell:
This is not the droid you are looking for... They went that-a-way.
All this for the low-low sticker price of 1.5 million... I would imagine at these rates we'll see one of these guarding every mansion in the western world before long in one of 16 available colours.

We apologize in advance for the inconvenience but your range shall be limited to wheelchair friendly establishments under present designs.

Now that I am done with my satire, I must ask the question: why does the MSN article sound like a huge sales pitch? Why do they undermine the bizarre and psychotic choice to make 'smiling' activate the munitions by turning that into the butt of a joke "Ingeniously (or weirdly)" takes the normal human reaction and mocks it by placing it in the under the breath brackets... Think about it, if some twisted bastard (and there are many of them out there) who gets a hard-on over killing people gets a hold of one of these things, think of where that ends up... Why is that horrific thought being suppressed?
