I look forward to the day Boston Dynamics robots become the dominant species on the planet.

Loved the last clip :olo:

So this is real now.
https://www.sciencealert.com/swarm-home ... ussia-uavs

Quote:
The Russian Ministry of Defence claims its forces in Syria were attacked a week ago by a swarm of home-made drones – the first time such a coordinated assault has been reported in a military action.

According to the Ministry of Defence, Russian forces at the Khmeimim air base and Tartus naval facility "successfully warded off a terrorist attack with massive application of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)" last Friday night.

...

While photographs of the improvised UAVs used in the assault make the drones look clunky and strung together, the Russians' analysis reveals they were armed with explosives and launched from a site more than 50 kilometres (31 miles) distant from their targets, navigating the trek via GPS and altitude-control sensors.

The Ministry says a technical examination indicates these drones would have an effective attacking range of about 100 kilometres (62 miles) – which is pretty terrifying – and means that in the new era of UAV warfare, locations that once may have seemed immune to attack, are in fact exposed.

That last paragraph is a nice bit of fear mongering.
Immune to what exactly?

Especially considering none of the drones actually made it all the way to their target. It's rudimentary right now, for sure, but it will get more and more sophisticated.

Drone swarm tech is already pretty advanced isn't it? Just watched a video the other day of Intel's drone swarm light-show at CES, with the operators talking about swarms of "search and rescue" drones being one of the next steps.
Just replace "Search and Rescue" with "Hunt and Kill".

The terminology she used in the video already sounded militaristic, calling the drone swarm Lights the "payload"

edit: here we go - not sure it's possible to embed these videos:

Anyone watch Black Mirror? Totally got a Boston Robotics vibe to it (they didn't really show it in the trailer).

Banning seemed a little over reactive but whatever, reasons were made and a days rest didnt hurt anyone.

Full deletion ?, pretty damn excessive.

Thanks ABC for the video.
