  Cylon Power
So I guess the Cylons have officially arrived.
Samsung has partnered with Korea University to develop a machine-gun equipped sentry robot, which consists of “two cameras: one for day-time and one for infrared night vision, zooming capabilities, a speaker for notifying the intruder, sophisticated pattern recognition to detect the difference between humans/trees, and a 5.5mm machine-gun.”
For some reason, I find this disconcerting. All for the nifty low price of $200,000. Weird.
And all the deaths & ensuing mayhem will just be like blips on a video game. Incredibly sad..
Or as our fearless Mis-leader put it, 'A comma in history'
not sure if business or political leaders read science fiction or if they don't.

computer-activated guns - yeah, greeeaaat idea.
These actually remind me of the old Short Circuit movies in the early - mid 80s. Now they're a reality? Creepy . . . "#5 IS alive!!
