Pentagon To Build Multi-Robot Pursuit System

The Pentagon has issued a request to its contractors to develop a new Multi-Robot Pursuit System that is able to “search for and detect a non-cooperative human.” This basically means robots have been built in order to hunt down humans just like a pack of dogs – good thing to programme such a complicated piece of software won’t take just a few months, but probably many years down the road. These robots are also tipped to be equipped with human detection and tracking devices in order to aid their task. Other than the fact that this might lead to the MGS4 “Gekko” one day, I guess it is time we started to be good law-abiding citizens lest Uncle Sam unleashes such a technological beast on us in a sign of his wrath.
