I'd like to present three exhibits for your consideration. Each, in and of itself, is relatively harmless. However, combinations of the three could create the greatest military advancement since the nuclear bomb.

Exhibits B1 and B2; Asimo. Honda's bipedal robot. This impressive little creation walks upright and can conquer the seemingly simple, yet realistically, extraordinarily difficult task of climbing stairs on two legs. It can recognize different people. It can learn. Heck, it can even hold a gun... or two... or have several guns mounted on it's shouldlers... this little guy is already one bad programming error away from being a murderer. That's his little competitor, Sony's very similar, yet even more advanced robot (and another version of the same robot pictured after that).



KUNG FU!


Exhibit C; This beast (wobbly as it may be right now), was built by a company in China. Combined with the technology used in Asimo, this could become a force to be reckoned with.


But what these technologies have been missing has been a viable brain. Until now. (and maybe a railgun or gauss cannon)

I present to you Exhibit A; the recently released Sony Playstation 3. (all rights reserved for Sony etc, etc, etc...).

This is a HEAVILY sophisticated piece of equipment with a combined processing power of 2teraflops. Essentially this is a supercomputer in a toy. Cheap, yet extremely powerful.

Just imagine a machine with the size of the China robot, with Asimo's ability to maneuver, and the brainpower of a PS3. I don't know about you, but I'm building a bunker in my basement right now and waiting for the planes to fly over, dropping hundreds of Gundam robots into our cities. Don't think we're not watching you Asia.


Think our eastern neighbors aren't up to no good, check out these links.
MegaTokyo / Tokyo2 (for those who've seen any anime)
Same yet different
South Korea clones humans (not that this is bad, but hey)

My hypothesis; Asia is setting the board for a global takeover. Watch out for ninjas, mech warriors, honda robots weilding guns, etc...

Walkers aren't a good design on the Battlefield, they're high and easily seen... an easy target for a tank. Why do you think they're build to be as low as possible?

I must say Mechwarrior was one of my all time favourite concepts!

lol
this must be a joke. we all know that mechs walking on two legs don't work so well on the battlefield they will just be a big target for rpg's which well cost about 10 dollars a piece lol.

I really really hope the creator of this thread was just joking and messing around, because if not...he's extremely paranoid.

A 1 year old child is smarter then the PS3 or any robot that exist today...hopfully in 15 years they will have the intelegence of a 5 year old.

It takes millions of lines of codes to have these robots to a simple task.

I'm in my mid 20's, and I hope that by the time i'm old and retire robots will be cheap and smart enough that it can make my life carefree, and everyday a relaxing vacation. But of course they will also evolve into military machines as well.

Heres one of the best robots sites around...Why? Because they have a long detailed list of robots, pictures, videos...and they (unlike 98% of the sites on the internet) keep thed site up to date.
excellent robot site

Japan and China work together! That will never happen.

This thread is a horrible joke. Who cares how many "FLOP"s the PS3 has, thats useless information people throw back and forth making them feel superior, that they can use the word in context. Why not just throw a lightweight supercomputer on it, because they have what 70 tFLOPS the last test.

LOL AWESOME

Walkers arent good against tanks no, but thats why aircraft blow the tanks up first. Walkers are good for civilian pacification and anti-infantry.

With enough armor and the ability for the computer to automatically take control of the targeting system, it could stand a pretty good chance against an RPG.

I would suspect the pricetag on these suckers would make them a desirable item by our US forces, Russia might bag one or two as well, but how likely is it that China would start constructing armies of them? And Japan... getting along with China... hmmmm?

I'm glad most of you got that I was joking. I'm just trying to point out how realistic the POSSIBILITY of these kind of things is becoming. When I was little I used a computer with a processor measured in kHz, and I'm only 22!

Just remarking on how fast technology is moving. And that the asian population seems to be trying to actually create real-life Anime things. I just find it a little humorous. (but also very interesting).

The technology for a PS3 is nowhere close to that needed for a "smart robot". I'd give it another 20 years before robots(like Asimo or the HRP-2) can be efficeintly used. And even with robots, no two nations could control the entire world.

Wow, National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) has like 70 PS2s strung together forming it's PlayStation 2 Linux cluster, I wonder if they will do the same with PS3.

70 PS2's - wonder how many teraflops p/sec that can do?.

The next-gen gaming consoles are impressive, Microsofts Xbox 360 can do over 1 teraflop, and the PS3 claims it can do 2 teraflops, however they always overhype there systems performance.

But there staight up punny when compared to Blue Gene/L, which it over 135 teraflops, which is the most powerful supercomputer to ever exist, its used for running simulations to assess the safety of the nations aging nuclear stockpile.

I doubt robots will ever rule the world, because people arn't stupid ebough to make a robot with AI and with the ability to be in a position of nuclear authority.
and if a nation sends a million asimos with guns, all it would take is a e-bomb, and they will all go to sleep, perminently.

Yep, Blue Gene/L Beta is still #1. Dept. of Energy will have a 360 tera-flop up this year. I think we're still a long way before the arrival of the big Transformers.

If, BIG IF, the two countries could work together, they couldn't take over Asia, let alone the world. Sorry gang, Japan has tech and China is coming on, with huge manpower BUT don't forget India, they're getting it too.

Betting WW3 starts in this part of the world. No Cold War experience and they live too damn close together.

Edit: be nice to sit one out.

Forget walkers entirely, flying drones could do the job.
Wave after wave, of "toys", flying under radar, spilling toxins, exploding, EMP explosions, whatever.
China says its military is 400 Million, if each one of those soldiers is put to work to build a drone, thats 400 million drones, per year (lets say), until they are ready. Forget about space defence, that would be their first staging ground, probably about 100,000 drones in space to take out all the satellites.


In a good sci-fi movie thats how it could work.
The real future....who knows?

The US is farily advanced in the robotics field as well as IBM, Toshiba and Sony jointly developed the Cell processor, and the most powerfull super computer are Japanese or American. So IMO Japan and the US combine would rule the world in a matter of years.

Japan sure does have the edge in the field of robotics on the US, due to its bipedal walkers, though NASA and the US have some rather not lame material of their own. I still believe a fleet of F-22's protecting a fleet of B-2's beats out any Gundam bipedal warrior. Air supperiority is key, that's why the rest of the world is afraid the US is going to start sending up weapons in space, ie lasers, nukes, missile platforms, etc...
THe worst part about it is the US is complying with everyone's lack of technology. If we continue to impede our own advancements at the hands of techless, fairly soon they may have similar capabilities in space. That is the goal for these countries: stall our efforts so they can catch up!
