Knightscope's Best Pivot Strategies - Please Add Your Suggestion

There are numerous Knightscope articles here on IPVM detailing the past problems with Knightscope's go to market strategy - and quite a few recent strings related to the demise (at least temporarily) of the K5 known as Steve in that D.C. fountain.

My question is: If you think (as I do) that Knightscope's business strategy is flawed, and you were hired as CEO of that company, what strategic changes would you make in order to try and become profitable using a different strategy to try and achieve a return on investments?

Think of BRS Labs and their many pivots to become what they are today. Note that BRS is using their core functionality (behavioral analytics) to try and solve something completely different than what they originally designed their technology to do (analyzing video surveillance).

My suggestion:

Add a holographic add-on module and then sell the K5 to movie theaters.

The K5 could roam the parking lot as a carnival barker type robot that can project movie trailers of films - à la R2D2 - that are coming soon.
