US military signs up robots
The American military is developing its latest weapon on the war on terror - a new generation of robotic soldiers.
The Pentagon predicts that robots will be a major element of the US armed forces in less than a decade, hunting and killing enemies in combat.
Several hundred robots are already digging up roadside bombs in Iraq, scouring caves in Afghanistan and serving as armed sentries at weapons depots.
And by April, an armed version of the bomb-disposal robot , known as SWORDS, will be in Baghdad and capable of firing 1,000 rounds a minute.
"They don't get hungry. They're not afraid," said Gordon Johnson of the Joint Forces Command at the Pentagon.
"They don't forget their orders. They don't care if the guy next to them has just been shot. Will they do a better job than humans? Yes."http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1286850.html?menu=news.technology
