Ever since I saw the Bionic arm on CNN news I figured the killing robot was next. I saw a special last night, and the Bot looked clumsy and ineffective. I'm sure we have better ones in secret. This is what we need in Nigeria. When I first read about killer Bots the whole idea was to send them into combat rather than human soldiers. They would go first, and once they smoke out the enemy and snipers, human soldiers would follow. How far are we from having working, effective killer Bots? My guess is we already have them. I didn't know we had a working Bionic arm until last week. The Military keeps secrets better than anyone.
Killer Bots are great unless their software ever becomes Self Aware. At that point we may reach the day of the Terminator. I think some or part of the technology and software comes from non human sources, and that's the problem.
Does anyone else think we already have autonomous killing bots, but we're keeping them secret until we really need to use them?
