Skynet: US military testing robots with machine guns

23 sec read

Didn’t we already see how bad of an idea it was to put machine guns in the hands of robots? Didn’t the Terminator series already warn us of the consequences.

A robot, equipped with an M240 machine gun, moves through the darkness until it stops under a stand of trees 100 yards from its squad of U.S. troops. The robot uses thermal imaging to detect enemy combatants hiding up ahead and aims its gun at them.

With a single command from its human controller, who is with the squad 100 yards back, the robot opens fire and takes out the enemy, saving the troops from a potentially deadly attack.
