Very cool. I'm fascinated to be witnessing the introduction of unmanned weaponry into our armed forces. I wish I would be around in 100 years to see where this technology has taken us.

Great find.

Yeah its pretty wild to see how they are automating just about everyhting now. The military has unmanned devices being developed for land, air and sea. I am with you in wishing I could see what this technology will have evolved into in 100 years.
