Real Fighting Mega Robots Thankfully Only Fire Paint Balls!

   

Fighting Mega Robots Like These Prove It is Possible. ( Tek-THinK)

I am pretty sure I recognize the design of these killer fighting robots from the first Robo-cop movie in the 80’s. The movie was good at the time because it was the first time that the world caught a glimpse of what future robotic systems might look like and what it may mean to the military and even local law enforcement. 

In truth reality is much scarier than the movie. ( Is this possible ?). In this video the inventor has designed and built some fighting robots that look a little like Robo-cop type machines but strickly as amusement to fire paint balls at each other.

The mechanical design of these giant robots is not the hard part for the engineers. It is the control and sensing ( connection to the web?).

Hopefully we are not adding intelligence and laser weapons but I am sure that somewhere we are going to do just that.

Stephen Hawking has been quoted as saying that the biggest threat to mankind is the uncontrolled application of artificial intelligence.
