PostSubject: "It's not Terminator" Putin's robot army is being trained to shoot guns   Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:33 am

Vladimir Putin's 'robot army' is being trained to shoot guns from both of its hands, it's emerged.
MirrorOnline reported last December how the android robots called FEDOR - Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research - are being developed for space exploration by Russia.
Now it's emerged that the human looking robots - with a head, two arms and two legs - have been handed guns as part of their training.
A video clip of them in action has already caused a senior government officials to issue a denial that they are creating a real-life "Terminator-style" killer.



The reference is to the robot in the Hollywood science fiction franchise - played by Arnold Schwarzenegger - which takes over the earth in the future by killing all humans that stand in its path.
FEDOR stands six foot tall, weighs between 106-160 kg depending on extra equipment - and can lift up to 20 kg of cargo.
Its creators claim that teaching them to shoot will help improve their motor skills and decision-making abilities.
Posting a short clip showing the armed robot in action, Russia's deputy PM Dmitryi Rogozin said: "Robot platform F.E.D.O.R. showed shooting skills with two hands.
"We are not creating a Terminator, but artificial intelligence that will be of great practical significance in various fields.”
