Wakamaru's latest job: guarding your kids.

We kind of thought the first remedial school jobs to be phased out by 
robots would be ridding those clueless nerds of their annoying positions 
of power as hall monitors, but Wakamaru is stepping right up to premises 
security guard. Deathly threatening as ever, the bright yellow plastic 
robot will be standing sentry at a primary school in Tokyo, monitoring 
students movement and demanding IC-chip based identification. No ID? 
Watch out, because Wakamaru will take a picture of you and totally tell 
a teacher (literally, all the Wakamaru can do is ring the administration 
to come help if it thinks something unsavory's going down).
