I honestly believe that in trying to make war "safer" by making machines that do things automatically, we will get to a point where we just have machines blasting at each other.  And, we'll all wonder

"Why the hell do we bother with war?  What's the point of it all?"

And I still want to know why they haven't figured out a good robot to clean the catbox.  Seriously.

yeah, some... but I think we will just send them to go kill humans, like we are doing with the drones.

>I worry about you
Rest assured, if I get a 40mph 400lb auto-dog with a mini-gun, you better start worrying about everybody else  ;D

On CNN:  The LS3 'Mule Robot'...looks like Big Dog

Those swarms are creepy...esp with the buzzing sound.

And now, the little buggers play music:

This is ... really impressive actually.  The little flying robots pull things across strings and fly up and down to strike keys on a keyboard...
