If probably wasn't even armed. Electronics malfunction all the time and the words "rogue" chopper sound a bit over-exaggerated lol. Probly just flew in a straight line til they could re-establish communication.

The article mentioned that it did not 'obey commands'.

That wouldnt just be a software glitch? Not responding to a command does not mean it is thinking for itself. And if it did, it seems it could only buzz the tower or crash into people as it was unarmed.

I knwo it has blades, but that would only be good for taking a person or two before it crashed.

It probably didn't obey commands due to a communications failure of some even states in the article that these type of things are routine...only difference this time is it happened to fly into restricted airspace...OOPS

This is just Step 1.

There will be more when Skynet finally gets online.

*Cue Terminator music*

Hey, the geek web site is cool.
Thanks for that.
As to the robo chopper...
Maybe they forgot to feed it a banana or a fish....
or maybe it went hormonal
These AIs are getting pretty advanced these days..
At least when it comes to imitating human faults...
Like unionization.

SkyNet became self aware Friday August 27 2010. The war between the humans and the robots has begun. Judgment day December 12 2012.

Lol Some one had to do it.
