Wow! I didn't realize they could make them move so life like and flawlessly like that, it is actually kind of scary. It is strange that I sort of felt sorry for the one the guy kept kicking but remembered it is just a robot lol

It may seem like a good idea at first, but in the end it may cause an increase in the use of military force around the world. If the country waging war has robots, it will reduce the human concerns and emotions that go along with waging war. There will be a lot less "should we, or shouldn't we" enter world conflicts. Instead, they'll just say... "Just send in the bots" without a second thought. The human toll of war will simply diminish in the eyes of countries who possess fighting robots.
I just think we continue to put too much emphasis on using technology to wage war instead of using technology for environmental and peaceful needs for humanity.
