This tablet on a stick isn’t RoboCop, but it’s a smart solution to risky traffic stops

In the late 1980s, in a dystopian future version of Detroit — that looks a lot like the current version of Detroit, if we’re being honest — an experimental cyborg cop, “RoboCop” aka Officer Alex Murphy, set out to clean the streets of some of its most vile criminals.

Featured in BBC Article
