No wonder Natural News got booted off FB.

(quote)Like something ripped right out of a sci-fi movie, the robot sweats to regulate body temperature, and it can be dressed in chemical suits, camo or other uniforms to resemble humans. The picture you see at the top of this article is take from the actual humanoid robot currently under development.

Have no illusions about where this is headed: The Pentagon wants to develop and deploy a robotic army of autonomous soldiers that will kill without hesitation. It's only a matter of time before these robots are armed with rifles, grenade launchers and more. Their target acquisition systems can be a hybrid combination of both thermal and night vision technologies, allowing them to see humans at night and even detect heat signatures through building walls.

This is the army humanity is eventually going to face. You'd all better start getting familiar with the anatomy of humanoid robots so that you know where to shoot them for maximum incapacitation effect. You'd also better start learning how to sew thermal blankets into clothing, hoodies and scarves in order to fool thermal imaging systems. (unquote)

Like the article says, this could be decades down the track, but then, technology is already there to make this a reality today.

Robotics is here to stay. As robotic technology becomes more refined and advanced we will see robots taking over a lot more of jobs people do today. That includes fighting wars, checking you out at the market, running factories and the list goes on.

Robots displacing human workers at an increasing rate is something we need to discussing before it happens.

It will be a reality, near total automation I mean.

I hope we go the way of Fresco rather than dodo.

I agree, almost total automation. I’d guess within the next two or three generations robotics will be THE major factor in unemployment. The repercussions are endless. It will make the industrial age look like childs play. Will we all live in decadent luxury or poverty. Will we control the robots are the other way around.
