This is both amazing and frightening at the same time!
A new robot has been invented in Russia and will be up for use in space by the year 2121. However, it is already equipped to shoot a pair of full-size Glocks and it does a pretty dang good job at it too.
The video below was released by the Russian government on social medias. The robot, nicknamed FEDOR, can be seen firing two Glocks at a target downrange, while also being in a timed match against a shooter who is human.
FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) is set to accompany a new generation of spacecraft for the Russian Federation and the news of his newfound pistolero skills was dropped by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
“The robot of the F.E.D.O.R. platform showed skills of firing using both arms. Currently the work on fine motor skills and decision algorithms is underway,” said Rogozin as reported by state-sponsored media outlet Sputnik News, who said Rogozin was quick to distance the spacebot from cylons and unruly cyborgs.
“We are not creating a terminator but artificial intelligence which will have a great practical importance in various fields,” he said.
So could this possibly be the future of military and police forces? Or will these robots be strictly be used for research?
