Japan's fascination1 with robotics and all things high-tech2 is legendary3, but did you know they make robot scarecrows now? Well, Super Robot Wolf is meant to scare a lot more than crows. 
 
日本人对机器人和高科技的迷恋举世闻名,不过你是否知道他们现在已经制造出了机器稻草人?这个机器稻草人就是超级机器狼,它要吓走的可不仅仅是乌鸦。
 
 
When I was growing up, farmers kept birds and other wild animals away from their crops with old fashioned scarecrows. You know, some rags hanging on a cross structure made of sticks with some chimes or small bells for added effect, and that worked ok. But those things couldn't hold a candle to this Japanese robot scarecrow with the coolest, most over-the-top name imaginable - Super Robot Wolf. They say it can scare away any wild animal, from deer to bears, and it definitely looks terrifying enough to do it. 
 
Developed by Hokkaido robotics company Ohta Seiki, Super Robot Wolf was recently borrowed by JA Kisarazu-shi, an agricultural cooperative association, to test its effectiveness in keeping wild animals away from crops. Looking like a hell hound, with freakishly large eyes and chompers that could bite through anything, Super Robot Wolf is a scary sight behold4, but there's a bit more to it than that. 
 
The high-tech scarecrow is equipped with an infrared5 ray sensor6 that lets it detect animals as they approach. When they get to close, the robot activates8. The eyes start glowing red, its head moves from one side to the other to create the illusion that it is alive, and it is capable of playing approximately 40 different sounds in rotation9, from wolf howling, to human voices and even gunshots, at high volume. And if you don't trust its intruder detection capabilities10, Super Monster Wolf also comes with a timer, so you can program it to activate7 at certain intervals11
 
Although technically12 still in trial phase, Super Robot Wolf has been performing so well that Ohta Seiki has already announced plans to put it on the market in September. Each unit will retail13 for about ¥200,000. Not the cheapest scarecrow money can buy, but definitely the most advanced one.
