Dubai one ups itself once again, this time with their robot lifeguards. Yup, that’s an actual thing. Human lifeguards are so 2000 and late, and Dubai obviously knows that. A video was posted on Instagram the other day by Dubai Municipality where it showed a human lifeguard launching the robot into the water to rescue a drowning person.


The 11-kg remote-controlled flotation device rescues the swimmer and brings them back to shore. robot lifeguards are officially in duty and are now operating in most of Dubai’s beaches.



WE SAID THIS: What should we expect next? A robot taxi driver? An android pizza boy?
