Robots with guns: The ethical dilemma

Got to see CMU’s Snake Robot up close and it’s really something. The bugger rolls around the floor and can climb up pipes and through holes with ease and, in a vaguely David Lynch-ian sense, scares me yet excites me at the same time. This is just a prototype but it’s definitely cool to see it working in real life. This model was wired but it had enough mobility to coil around and climb a cardboard tube. Just think what it can do to your colon.
