They will have to be exception swimmers to get me. Besides, I have a coconut trebuchet. Stellar defensive weapon.


Interesting article Kinda makes a person wonder what they were designed for, eh? Sarah Conner, where are you?

According to the article:
"Multi-Robot Pursuit System" that will let packs of robots "search for and detect a non-cooperative human".

Maybe what we really need is a robot like Klatu in The day the earth stood still. Now that would be revolutionary. Keeping peace in the world and no more armies to invade on another.

The pic in the article reminds me of Big Dog

And this is not, though it may appear to be, a one line post.

I actually thought of that tape deck guy on the old transformers cartoon that had all the tape animals come out of his chest, didn't he have a dog?

But seriously, WHY! are tax dollars going in to things like this??? You've got the CIA playing WoW, and now robot dogs. I can't wait for whatever is next.

I want a Klatu.

so how does a robot determine if a human is a "non-cooperative human"?
or is it a "sic 'em boy!" type scenario where the decisions are being made by policing thugs?

robots seem so sci-fi to us now, but i bet down the road when we are old and gray, it'll all be as common as indoor toilets.

I would also like to know whats wrong with the dogs we have. Sure there may be a few places that a regular K-9 cant get into, but whats wrong with the little armed remote control bomb disposal robots?

I totally agree, If it's after me, I'm going to get away, or kill it.
