This Will Not End Well For Any Of Us

This is a new humanoid robot designed to fight fires on Navy ships. According to the US Naval Research Laboratory who are building it with Virginia Tech and University of Pennsylvania, "a humanoid-type robot was chosen because it was deemed best suited to operate within the confines of an environment that was deigned for human mobility." Of course it will likely have other uses besides firefighting: The humanoid form factor "offered opportunity for other potential war fighting applications within the Navy and Marine Corps."

Skynet has many other resources at their disposal. They are worse that the Umbrella Corp. for me.

Of course Virginia had their hand in this. That's where the robot invasion will start from. (We have the CIA, unlimited funds, and college participation ... apparently.)
