Alarming footage shows a robot dog wielding an assault rifle (metro.co.uk)

Not exactly man’s best friend.

What do you think?

Exactly what I thought of the instant I saw the picture! I only caught a few episodes of Black Mirror before I had to turn it off ~ a LOT of the stories (including the robotic dogs one) were utterly horrifying ~ most especially because many of them aren’t too far off from being a possible reality in the near future. (“Monkey needs a hug”?!? I *still* have nightmares!)

This reminds me of a video game, and it takes “aimbot” to a new level

China already did this on the Indian border last December, only it wasn’t ‘dogs’ and looked more like little tanks.

I’m a bit worried about this in America. If people can get robot dogs wielding assault rifles… Then who will ever adopt the real dogs from the pound?
