My only question is . . . if it's *this* capable, why send in human troops in the first place?

Well, you gave the answer in your post with the robocop video :) I would be comfortable with an heavily armed robot roaming
a city. (I'm not that comfortable with an heavily armed 18 years old either anyway :p).

That is an awesome robot! I'm in love with that machine already and its potential!

Any possibility robots like these can also be used in firefighting rescue and police force?
I think the chauffeur did it.

.......

He did.

Behind technology there is always scientists, behind diplomacy, there was always man.....
Some things can't be replaced for the very essence they exist... '
Moreover throughout history, it has been shown that numbers sometime bearly count
That's why there are still humans into war...

That's why they are focusing on exoskeletons... It's kinda the best technology has to offer...
For whom the interrupts toll...


P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!

There is a good reason robtos don't fight our wars, 1 is from an ethical stand point as your taking the human out of the loop and most people don't want robots to decide who and who not to kill, as robots don't have the capacity to make disions from a ethical view, it will all be based on there programming and task.

The second is it is a big risk to arm robots as if something catastrophic happens like a programming glitch the robot may end up on a shooting spree.

But i think soon un maned robots will play a big part in war. And also in the not to distant future robots will make up an important pat of the fire and rescue teams.
