Kallos' bill would make it so that any kind of autonomous robot used by police—like robot police dogs or drones—that interacts with the public in the future doesn't have weaponry attached to it, his office said in a statement.
In the statement, Kallos said he wanted to make sure the city didn't feel "like a Black Mirror episode."
"The technology to arm robots already exists and in order to prevent anything like that from happening we have to act now, before the technology gets ahead of the laws," Kallos said.
As Wired notes, Boston Dynamics prohibits attaching weapons as part of the company's terms of service. But the potential for arming robot police dogs is not farfetched.
