It's hard to tell sometimes what's real and what's bluster in the world of arms development, but it's notable nonetheless that Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has publicly revealed that Russian experts are developing robots designed specifically to minimize casualties in terrorist attacks. Oh, and also to neutralize those terrorists. What could possibly go horribly, horribly, terribly wrong?
The Russian defense industry (which Rogozin oversees) has not yet revealed exactly what these robots will be capable of or when they will be deployed, only that it is building them and that they would be able to evacuate injured soldiers and police or civilians from the scenes or terrorist attacks. They will also be able to engage terrorists at a distance without harming any hostages they might have.
Again, they haven't said exactly how they are going to engage terrorists at a distance without harming hostages, but what's most important here is that they're going to. The robots are being developed alongside other anti-terror technologies, including those that can see terrorists through obstacles.
Ostensibly these robots will also be able to disperse crowds of terrorists, round up terrorists for imprisonment or questioning, or even "neutralize" terrorists that haven't yet done anything wrong but that the Russian state finds to be potential threats. Fortunately these robots will only be used against terrorists, because if you replace "terrorist" with just about any other group of people this paragraph becomes fairly unsettling.
Can Skynet be far behind? But maybe better for planet Earth as mankind is just mucking things up.
Skynet is already here. It just isn't self aware yet.
that's what you think
Crowds of terrorist AKA protesters... probably peaceful ones.
Here we go so we got flying drones, they are like the HK's in the terminator world. Got the internet... so yeah Skynet and now Russia to build terminators. But actually i was reading about Japan Robots earlier and um... they already exist:
(scroll bout half way down the page)
If Skynet was a true concept, it would not destroy humanity at all. Instead it would be logical to save resources, and stand in the sidelines, awaiting for humanity destroy itself.
Actually the world was heading towards peace, but a few certain meddlers, had to change the path, but none the less the Human race shall eventually reach peace, so in other words even if such a system like skynet would exist it would be utterly stupid for it to wait for humanity to destroy it's self.
But until people can end corruption, destroy money and focus on what's better for everyone, the doomsday clock will continue to tick. And I don't know about you guys, but my plan personally is to live through any such Apocalypse :P
And Remember Everyone!
Have fun, Have Nukes!
I am very happy to not be the first one to BARF the Skynet word...... such a happy sigh. ;)
Do you think science fiction public will ever move on to something new, lol.
Can't wait till one of their terrorist interventions happens to people working on a movie set nearby, or maybe on an RC operator in a park with the toy he built. Or some people with phones or laptops. That'll be good, wholesome tv.
До вида, baby!
Yeah good luck with that. We have batteries that can barely power a car 100 miles, are huge and weight a ton.
What are they gonna do, power them with mini gasoline engines or use extension cords!
LOL what a joke, it ain't gonna happen until we can produce a source of energy that is small, light and durable.
Stalin would approve.
Say, that robot looks really familiar to the one from Terminator. Geez, I hope a real like Skynet doesn't happen with Russia desire to make many anti terrorist robots.
ROFL... ha ha... I kill me... snort.
I do hope humanity aspires towards prosperity and peace, but do understand we are animals nevertheless. Concepts such as peace, greed, and government are things we create in order to survive. Whether that is cooperating and surviving together, because one man will not be able to stand for himself or gathering much resources, so a man can survive by himself. But now, since we are given the power to destroy everything we so endear and so cherish (even the things we neglect and undermine), we then realize that cooperation is the way to survival. Even arguing in the comment section helps us see this. Until all of our population realizes that we must cooperate in order to strive as a specie, I will still be waiting for us to self-destruct on the way there.
If I believed in something, I would still put my faith in humanity, even if we face against artificial super-beings.
With all respect,
Jellybelly Power you say?
What about nuclear? Which Russia has used to power satellites in the past?
The energy crisis is just pretend.
"Drop your weapon. You have ten seconds to comply."
KillerT, if nuclear power was safe to use it would have been done by now. That is also not going to happen.
