“Robot Dogs” could soon help patrol the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
DHS officials said the robot dogs would be a great asset, especially because of the rough landscape along the 2,000-mile long border.
They can reportedly transmit real-time video and other data back to human operators while climbing over sand, rocks, and hills.
The robots can also explore confined spaces, have long-range and night vision cameras, plus sensors to identify drugs and chemical weapons.

No specifics were released as to when or how many of the robot dogs might be deployed.
Does this seem like a good idea — or a waste of taxpayer money?
