There has been talk of life guard robots for a while but little did we expect to see the day...But then of course we remembered that we live in Dubai.

Until Saturday that is, when Dubai Municipality released a tweet announcing a UAE first: a robot for marine salvage on public beaches.

A UAE First...

12 times the speed of a human

Soon robot lifeguards, along with humans will be busy on Dubai beaches. Each robot is controlled by a remote control from land, and has the ability to make 30 saves before a recharge is necessary.
