I can't stop laughing. That is so funny looking. But it sure can move. I want to put a saddle on it and go for a ride.

Seems like a lot of extra work...and maybe kind of painful...not real sure where he took it.

copied from article:

"It was able to fire multiple shots into the man's head after he activated it."

What part did you find confusing?

4 shots in the earlobe seems an unnecessary pain to me...YMMV.
Or perhaps, 3 shots into the jaw, before the fatal 4th shot....I mean, how many non lethal shots were fired first? Why not just make a big bomb and set it off in your lap? Would be a lot more sure thing and only one bang.

That's frightening and a little too futuristic. Scary.

those walker robots are no good--
just wait until they link one of those
with a cyber brain and train it to police us--

I saw a real article recently on how DARPA
or some other creepy agency trained a rat brain
that was isolated in vitro to pilot a bomb--
all of this stuff will be combined in the future
to have real hunter killer robots run by organic
intelligence.

That was totally cheesey, which means it rocked, in rat brain talk.

My problem is that he rigged a device to shoot .22 caliber bullets! (presumably .22 LR) Too much potential for failure, resulting in a lot of pain. I would have rigged a device that shot .50 Action Express.

.50 AE far left, then .44 magnum. A .22 LR is on far right.
