Why Do We Keep Giving Robots Weapons?

So, this grad student has built, for his final assignment, a fully functioning, tracking and shooting replica of a turret gun from the game Portal. Watch as he demonstrates said gun by stepping into the line of fire and allowing it to shoot him. Let me rephrase: it seduces him with it's not at all terrifying voice into stepping into the line of fire, and he allows it to acclimate to the concept of shooting him, repeatedly. With bullets, which are Nerf... for now.

All humour aside, "it's getting a little anxious" is never a phrase I want to hear said about anything equipped with automatic weapons.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
