A cyborg army is always the stuff of imagination, but that could soon be a reality thanks to some strides made by an Israeli defense firm. This company has recently unveiled a portable robot known as VIPeR which is capable of entering most combat zones on its own and exchanging fire with enemies thanks to its arsenal of a machine-pistol and some grenades. Sharing the rough dimensions of a small TV, the VIPeR could play a vital role when it comes to protecting Israel’s interests from Palestinian or Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas. The VIPeR still requires the assistance of a human controller to perform, and at least it helps cut down on the battlefield casualties for one side.
