Who remembers watching the first Terminator film and thinking ‘thank **** these robot things are not actually a thing’. I am sure many people who have experienced the visual delight of the film knew deep down that, one day, the robots would arrive.
And now it seems like that day has finally come after the United States Air Force (USAF) announced that they have just deployed their first ‘robot dogs’. The dogs will be used to patrol air bases around the country.
Of course, this is not the first time we have seen robot dogs. But this is the first time (publically at least) that a military organisation has announced that they will be deploying robots in a roll that would ordinarily be undertaken by their animal (or human) counterparts.
