Will these be leading us into battle?

Impressive, but the reasoning to duplicate human form and movement is unclear. Industrial robots, for example, are designed as task-specific, with no effort to duplicate human morphology. On-the-ground war robots I expect will more likely be small, fast moving, remote control tanks with a swivel-mounted machine guns, grenade launchers, etc... Imagine a thousand of them coming over a hill towards you.

The robots would be easier for the Cabal to control…

Unmanned Howe and Howe "Ripsaw". The US military took an early interest in this.

I can imagine more than a few instances when one of these robots dressed to look like a soldier would be useful...walking into an ambush to disclose enemy positions for one....especially if they were largely compartmentalized and could sustain considerable damage to one portion and still be functional in other portions...

Really? Not sure how smart it was to stand around while a dizzy "robo-cop" takes a second shot.

It didn't look so smart to me! I never saw it aim its gun at the guy disturbing it!

The original video is made by Corridor about 3 years ago. In the discription they claim it to be fake:

The video may be fake, but the concept is well within the realm of possibility...

It’s not only the concerted, but the initial psychology behind it. Having your opponent seeing this the first time on the battle field. Before they can develop counter-measures

Watching two groups of robots destroying each other doesn't seem to be an adequate way of resolving conflicts between the various <...us...>es.

There’s more than thats going on,… it’s the development of new process, technologies and procedures.

You look at the last 150 years, the majority of progress, whether it be healthcare, materials, technology, etc… all is a derivative of the military development.

"You look at the last 150 years, the majority of progress, whether it be healthcare, materials, technology, etc… all is a derivative of the military development."

I thought it was the other way around - the military appropriating developments from other fields. The Howe and Howe tank (photo I posted earlier) was not originally developed by the Howe brothers as a remote control military vehicle, but the US military saw the potential and approached them. Decades ago, when Dr. John Lilly was experimenting with electrical stimulation of the pleasure centres of animal's brains, again, the US military wanted him to help them use it to remotely guide pack animals carrying high explosives into enemy territory for remote detonation (he refused to participate). When applying for a US patent, the inventor must declare if the invention could conceivably have a military application. If so, the details are classified as secret and the US government will block publication of the patent.

There’s an exception to everything.

Returning to the question: in the limit, instead of people fighting and killing each other, robots will be fighting and destroying each other instead? The point of that needs to be shared out among people who care, really.

People who really cares,… are the same people that really sorry…

I hope I don’t have to explain the indirect message.
