Haven’t they seen the Terminator movies?

Talon Robot

The Talon robot (the link above includes some pics), usually used for handling mines and other hazardous suppoort work by combat engineers, is getting rockets, grenades, and machine guns. They call it the “wardroid.” They’re replacing the claw on the 63 inch arm with a quick-mount for all sorts of weaponry.

Although the Talon is operated by a human via remote, it includes

onboard GPS and software that provides some autonomous behavior.

Very cool. And just a little scary.
