    Well that's amazing. "When one robot gets hit [shot], the other robots react." -WOW.

    They can even play hostage/captor and sense others in their way, communicate with each other, rove around...

    That's a fun little training program right there!

    This system just screams - Mall Security! [winkthumb]

    No more need for those pizza and beer swilling "Tacticool Mall Ninjas"....... [ROFL]

    Seriously though - an armed version would make an interesting security system for big warehouses, ports, storage yards, etc.

    It doesn't worry me so much when the semi-intelligent segway robots are the targets, but when the segway robots are armed with ball, and with some kind of IFF system...I'm thinking WESTWORLD!!!!!

    I can see the principles behind this system being used to stand off automate a number of weapons platforms and logistics systems.

    For instance, instead of human drivers running the IED gauntlet along MSR's it is conceivable that a segway type guidance system might take the flak, instead of meat and bone.

    There may be some advantages, but the battlefield is becoming automated to the point thatvhuman influence of a highly complex and hostile environment is being lost (Not that a battlefield is humanly controllable)....I'm thinking West World on a truly mechanised industrial scale, instead of Yul Brynner with a dinky 6 shooter.
