Army orders 24 new sentry-bots, Judgment Day moved up two months

Of course, you laughed yesterday when you heard Professor Noel Sharkey warn against impending apocalyptic man vs. machine battle that was to come, but it can receive news that you sing a different song. A pilot program in Nevada employing robotic sentinels of the patrol Hawthorne Army Depot is an update: 24 brand new MDARS called drones, or “Mobile Detection and Assessment and Response System.” The purchase of $ 40 million will nab Army diesel robots which operate at speeds of up to 20 km / h, the use of RFID tags to keep track of locks and barriers, and can operate for 16 hours without refueling. Although robots have been tested with automatic weapons, these new versions will be equipped with non-lethal weapons, making them much less deadly when Skynet is online.
