    Two Japanese companies have the answer for people worried about leaving their homes empty while they go on vacation: a house-sitter robot armed with a digital camera, infrared sensors and a videophone.

    Stores across Japan started taking orders earlier this month for the Roborior -- a watermelon-sized eyeball on wheels that glows purple, blue and orange and can sense break-ins using infrared sensors and notify homeowners by calling their cell phones and sending video from its digital camera.

    Obviously this is a Japanese invention. If it were American, the robot would have a gun.
