I have a long history of posting robot-related blogs, many of them inventions of government military contractor Boston Dynamics. Horse robots, people robots — we’ve posted them all. But this one? The WildCat? Way the fuck over the line.
It’s the yet-to-be-seen classified robots that should freak everybody out, because if we’re seeing the WildCat now we can guarantee a much more polished model is already being used by our government today. Faster, pin-drop quiet versions of this monster with guns on the side and a flamethrower and body heat sensors that can stalk a human from a mile away and rip it in half. THIS is the reason why the gun control debate is pointless. I want to have automatic weapons ready to defend my country against a tyrannic government just as much as the next patriot, but my AK won’t mean a goddamned thing when the still classified WildCat has my kid in it’s mouth and is running away at 90MPH.
Whatever comes first between World War III and Civil War II, at least we can look forward to finally seeing all the secret military stuff.
