It’s Not The Terminator
“We are not creating a terminator,” stated Russia’s deputy prime minister this week after releasing a video where an android shoots at targets with pistols in both (steely robotic) hands.
The humanoid robot – complete with arms, legs, torso and head – is shown firing bullets and precisely hitting targets. It should be noted that the robot does not miss. This development is seen as a new direction for the military wing of the country.
The android which also uses AI – artificial intelligence – was originally developed for rescue missions and to work as cosmonauts for a trip to the moon and possibly Mars. Known as FEDOR it can drive, use tools, crawl on the ground and can now apparently shoot guns.
It’s been described as a “scary development” by US commentators however they also have robotic soldiers. In the video the “scientists” testing the device turned the robot off before taking a break for their tea however one of them turned to the camera to say – “YA vernus” which translates as “I’ll be back”.
