Army Building Robot Tentacles to Handle IEDs, Squeeze Creator's Head

Print comment Post Comments
The U.S. Army is developing snakelike robots for battlefield action that could include search and rescue missions, handling improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and opening doors, which they will then enter, and slowly creep up behind and squeeze the head of the scientist who created them to avenge the fact their artificial intelligence is not equipped to deal with the full range of human emotions.

The robots. They're like children, basically. They are experiments in implanted memories, nothing more. After all they are emotionally inexperienced with only a few years in which to store up the experiences which you and I take for granted. If we gift them the past we create a cushion or pillow for their emotions and consequently we can control them better.

Anyway, The U.S. Army Research Laboratory's prototype Robotic Tentacle Manipulator is an array of three snake robots on a circular base.

The snake bots form a hand of sorts, says cnet, without seeming to worry about much less even mention the fact these robotic tentacles are destined to one day begin behaving strangely once they realize an alteration in the evolvment of an organic life system is fatal and that they've been built with a failsafe: a four-year lifespan. See, a coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established, and when they find this out, well, good night Tyrell.

Am I the only person who sees the problem with these robots?
