How proud of their creation did those guys look? One of them couldn`t wipe the grin off his face. And quite right too, its a very impressive first step.

why do all these robot...destroyers, whatever the hell they are, why do they have to think for themselves. It seems like one of the coolest ideas ever and it would really work as long as we had constant control over it, but then you give it a mind and it`s not always gonna do what you want. I`m not trying to sound matrixy or anything but...How long can something stay great?

I love Futureweapons! It`s probably the best Discovery Channel show I`ve seen.

^ If we had these in Vietnam, we would`ve won.

"...eventually available to the general public." Do we get the versions with the gun on top also?

It <i>does</i> have a turret on top. Unless that`s something else that just looks like a turret. Good for anti-infantry.

It`s a good show, but the narrator is way too dramatic.

Also, that`d be a sweet ride to work.

"since i`m not interested in such things, why did i watch that?"
Because YOU are a slave to the will of IAB! Mwahahahahaaa!!!

Those little rotating camera-thingies look to me like the robots driving it were grooving to some music. xD

I was in the washroom taking a dump so I didn`t `see` the video. Anyway, what I heard was cool.

This machine will get hacked, turn evil, and kill thousands, if not millions, until it is stopped by missiles or something.

very stealth...i´d take one look at it and instantly ask for anti armor support.Now if they can fix the fact that its about as vunerable to weapons in general as it gets,then it would be a good idea.Also,wonder what its fueled by.But all in all,isn´t a bad concept.

^ to the two posts above me
it said in the video that this vehicle`s main purpose would be reconnaissance/ scouting and when you are scouting you are not supposed to fight or actually engage the enemy.

^If you don`t care that your comment isn`t first anymore (which you shouldn`t) you wouldn`t mind just saying the same thing again. Chill.

Dude that thing was friggin` awesome... Can`t wait to see them trying to roll over each other. *sigh* American soldiers driving these over washing machines...
