In the age of brilliant technological advances there is always a dark side. Recently, I have been reading a lot about the use of robotics in war zones as of 2008 there are 12,000 robots used on the battle field, 2 years later who knows how many are used. You would think that with all the brain power it takes to engineer a robot the people behind them would want to produce robots for the good of mankind.
Here is a video I found on that topic on Ted…
Here are some other tests in the works…Scary!
Lockheed Martin MULE
Customer: U.S. Army ordered more than 1700 for 15 brigades, a potential human-to-robot ratio of 29:1 | Deployment: Ready for combat as early as 2014 | Models: Half will be armed; the rest will clear minefields and haul gear | Cargo capability: 1800 to 2000 pounds | Weapons: Four antitank Javelin missiles and a turret-mounted M240 machine gun.
This shit is ridiculous.
