Are you worried about alien, vampire, or zombie attacks?  Well, pick up the book How to Build a Robot Army for the perfect solution.  Daniel H. Wilson, who has a Ph.D. in robotics, has written a guide for building your own robot army to defend yourself from monstrous attacks.  This is a completely scientific and factual guide to robots that have been thought up in the scientific and entertainment communities and how you can modify them for defensive purposes.  For example, Wilson states that CMU Nano Robotics Laboratory have developed STRIDE, or Surface Tension Robot Insect Dynamic Explorer.  This robot prototype has 12 legs, weighs a quarter of an ounce, and has the ability to skate across water like the waterstrider bug.  Wilson suggests that in the time of a monster attack, you can use these robotic bugs to attack in swarms, relay information, or as a distraction.
