Pentagon Shows Off Terminator-Like Robot… For Humanitarian Missions

Yeah, that’s the ticket: Humanitarian….

The Atlas robot prototype is envisioned as a tool to rescue people trapped under debris and that kind of thing, so don’t even thing about skulls being crushed under the treads of killer robots like in the first Terminator movie because that’s totally wrong, silly.

  1. Ah clickbait at its finest. You win this round Disinfo!

  2. Yep I read about this thing a while ago. They also have a 4 legged one based off a cheetahs body and movement that can run 25mph. Cuz you know we need a robot that can outrun even the fastest Olympic runner for “humanitarian reasons” and “search and rescue.”

    Me “ἀγάπη ” you long time, Joe . . .

  4. Well we already have Humanitarian Interventions such as what happened in Libya and Afghanistan, so now we need Humanitarian Terminators to execute the Humanitarian Solution in the Humanitarian Camps.

    • Well ya you cant have your soldiers, I mean humanitarians, possibly letting pesky things like emotions or morals make them question or not follow orders.

    Robots are easily defeated. They have no guile. Humans out-deadly any robot.

    • Maybe current day preprogrammed robots.

      However I disagree in the long run. Whenever artificial neuro network powered robotics come around then thats what I am worried about. They can learn to be sly and cunning and will never forget any tactic ever used against them and never get tired.
