Video warns of the danger of autonomous ‘slaughterbot’ drone swarms

The scenes depicted are terrifying: a classroom shooting, target political assassinations, nations living in fear of targeted attacks with no way to respond.

It looks like an episode of “Black Mirror.” And like the hit BBC show, the short film “Slaughterbots” is a prescient warning about the use of technology in our lives – and its potential consequences.

    So for now we have to put up with SJW swarms attacking people and I am supposed to have time to worry about this?

  • Interesting video prediction.

    Drone swarm warfare is coming. LIke it or not.

    The silly things can be beaten by a flyswatter.

    Overly dramatic semantics.

  • I want a batch of these.

      Can we program them to attack people double parking?

    I can try my best to defend myself and my family from induvidual attacks, SHTF types of situations, but if governments get involved, I think we are well and truly effed. I came to that conclusion when I saw the CBU 105 video on Youtube years ago. If this is the type of stuff that’s already declassified and on Youtube, I can’t even imagine what DARPA is up to these days.

    I’d be more worried, based on Hollywood’s gestalt, of swarms of molester-bots.
