Korean electronics titan Samsung has teamed up with Korea University to develop a -- get this -- MACHINE GUN-EQUIPPED SENTRY ROBOT.
"Samsung has partnered with Korea university and developed the machine-gun equipped robotic sentry. It is equipped with two cameras with zooming capabilities one for day time and one for infrared night vision. It has a sophisticated pattern recognition which can detect the difference between humans and trees, and a 5.5mm machine-gun. The robot also has a speaker to warn the intruder to surrender or get a perfect headshot. The robots will go on sale by 2007 for $ 200,000..."Remember that old Saturday Night Live skit, the commercial for "Bad Idea Jeans"?
I can't think of a more fitting candidate.
Good thing its strong suit is being able to tell the (admittedly small) difference between HUMANS and TREES.
Check out the jaunty, happy music accompanying the video. After all, what could be more joyful than thoughtlessly killing people?
Folks, we're talking about an automated, human-slaughtering machine. The cost of a human life just got immeasurably cheaper. Who ARE the evil bastards that sit around all day conjuring up sick ideas like this? One word: T-H-E-R-A-P-Y.
