See that little guy right there? It's not Johnny Five from Short Circuit β€” though we have a suspicion it has a better career than Fisher Stevens β€” it's ANDRO Robot, which has been specifically designed to serve as security for the World Cup in Germany.

According to Gizmodo, the robot can "climb stairs and examine suspicious objects," two things that, incidentally, our parents were also excellent at when we were in high school.

Anyway, we're imagining all kinds of ED-209 scenarios, where a hooligan is told to "Please put down your Guinness. You have 20 seconds to comply." You can probably guess what would happen then.
