Insanely Dangerous Security Product of the Year

How many horribly wrong things can you find in this article?
It's a robot with a gun (or machine gun) that can be set to fire on anything that moves, or to be controlled over the internet.
Thank god it has an option for human control over the interent because, according to it's inventor, "Otherwise it could kill people."
You think? Don't worry though, because they've password protected the internet controls, and no one's ever been able to get defeat a password.
I think the inventor should have to put one of these in his house, if he lives through the year, then he can start selling it.
Did I mention that he wants to upgrade it to be mobile?
And my favorite quote, he wants to sell it to the US military, because he feels "It should be in good hands." Presumably because "otherwise it could kill people."
