According To Russian Military Tech Chief, Robots Will Replace Human Soldiers Soon

What if the machines turn against us humans, though?

Why does everybody seem to be obsessed with robotics lately?

In a recent news circulating online, we learn that a military leader in Russia believes that combat robots will be replacing soldiers in the future. Furthermore, these robotic warriors will fight on land, in the air, at sea, and even in outer space, as an RT article tells us.

In an interview with RIA Novosti, Lieutenant General Andrey Grigoriev, head of the Advanced Research Foundation (ARF) declared:

“Future warfare will involve operators and machines, not soldiers shooting at each other on the battlefield,” said Russia’s Lt. Gen. Andrey Grigoriev.

“I see a greater robotization [of war], in fact, future warfare will involve operators and machines, not soldiers shooting at each other on the battlefield…

“It would be powerful robot units fighting on land, in the air, at sea as well as underwater and in outer space.”

Last year, Vladimir Putin visited a Research Institute outside of Moscow and was presented this military cybirg biker:

What role would human soldiers play in the future then? Grigoriev said:

“The soldier would gradually turn into an operator and be removed from the battlefield.”

In relation with this, we have heard about last year’s news about the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) which had been developing the Unicom – a software capable of powering up to 10 robots at the same tne. The system can designate ‘roles’ among robots, pick a ‘commander,’and even assign combat missions.

Meanwhile, Russia’s The Legionnaire is currently a work in progress. This one will come with advanced firearms and communication systems along with protection against bullets and shrapnel.

About a year ago, Grigoriev also mentioned that the country was creating a cyborg that resembles “a human in appearance.” This machine has been built to withstand hostile environments and is designed to “learn how to run, jump, overcome obstacles and even ride a motorbike.”

Another work-in-progress project is the “IVAN The Terminator”:

Well warfare just got a lot more expensive, folks. If you’ll look at the brightside though, this may lead to a decreased number of military casualties in the battlefield.

The Future of Recycling is Here: Scientists Transform Plastic Waste into Fuel

Now if only people would stop using and wasting so much plastic…

By

Its a disheartening fact that our oceans are chock-filled with garbage. Plastic wastes are a particularly great headache. This plastic refuse takes an estimated 450 years to disintegrate. It is also slowly killing off marine animals.

One particular gigantic eyesore is the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch," a swirling island of mostly plastic waste the size of a continent which stretches from Japan all the way to Hawaii. It is the world's biggest vortex of trash, and it is not the only one.

American Medical Association Issues Warning About the Dangers of LED Street Lights

Progress and technology come with a price.

By

Modern cities have started to switch to LED lighting as a brighter and more efficient way to light up city streets. LED lights are cheaper and brighter than the older orange colored street lights of decades past.

However, despite the cost-efficient way technology is brightening up city streets, the American Medical Association has issued a new warning about LED lighting.

Apparently, LED lighting comes with consequences.
