Very impressive indeed, but every time I see some article or whatever on these, the one thing that always comes to me is...WHY???
What immediately came to my mind was clearing up in dangerous situations - Chernobyl, Fukushima, minefields etc, etc.
Indeed ... that would be a beneficial use of robots. I'm don't think using remotely controlled robots to wage warfare is such a great idea though. In my opinion, it reduces the operator to the level of a video gamer .
Though I would never wish PTSD on anyone, I think it's notable that a high percentage of these kinds of operators suffer from this disorder. How long do you think the armed forces will wait before they undertake measures to desensitize people from this type of killing. We don't need the military creating more heartless, soulless killers than already exist.
I also don't want a robot giving me a traffic ticket ... lol ...
