kkleiner writes “The armed forces of the world have already begun to hunt down and shoot robots. No, it’s not the beginning of the man-machine war; it’s a state-of-the-art training simulation that’s very cool to watch. Australia-based Marathon Robotics has taken Segways and turned them into human-shaped autonomous robots capable of moving around streets and buildings just like people in a crowd! The Marathon bots can act like insurgents, hostages, or civilians, letting armed soldiers practice before being exposed to the real thing. The Australian Department of Defense already has a training camp using the robots, and the US Marine Corps will be establishing one this year.”
