Skynet now has another tool in the quest to destroy the human race. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Sandia's self guided bullet.

https://share.sandia.gov/news/resour...leases/bullet/



Sandia researchers Red Jones and Brian Kast and their colleagues have invented a dart-like, self-guided bullet for small-caliber, smooth-bore firearms that could hit laser-designated targets at distances of more than a mile (about 2,000 meters).
We're f00cked.

The military is soooo gonna want these with camera strapped to them for urban clearing. That's immediately available. With these, then can section off the buildings, identify where and how many enemy, and then send in the troops.

Later they can strap on explosives.

Our shop machines parts for a very high end robotics company. They used to account for about 10% of or work. Now its up around 40%. A lot of prototypes and one offs. We only make one part per assembly so its impossible to know what its for. They spread out their work to keep people from knowing what they are up too. Id sure like to know though

Dude... quadrotor + machine gun + self destruct

Just wait till Skynet gets ahold of this. We're all doomed. Terminator time.

More on quad copters.... what I didn't realize is that for quad copters to work well, they need the external camera positioning system.
