    Whilst searching google images for a project i have in mind i found these, got to say couldnt help laughing.

    A remote controlled bomb disposal robot was deployed to check ground zero for unexploded ordnance (UXO). The machine inspected the debris around the dead corpse of the alleged bomber, then turned its attention to the man himself and removed the deceased's jacket by means of its articulate arm. Having unveiled nothing dangerous, the robot went on to the ultimate test ...

    .. rolling "over the body of the purported bomber, in a final attempt to be sure there are no more explosives on his person."

    After having mangled the body to satisfaction, Nr 512 returned to investigating and securing the perimeter. Note the blood on the ground, smeared about by the robot's crawler tracks.

    Allow me a bit of twisted thinking ... the "mindsets" of both "entities" in the pictures, the man on the ground, and the robot upon him, are very much alike—or were very much alike, when the man was still alive. Neither of them has any respect for human life, and both are more than ready to risk their very own complete destruction.

    That's a pretty unfeeling robot alright. There is one significant difference of course . . . . .

    The cold-hearted robot was there to stop further loss of life, where as the stiff had been there to cause it.
     
  3. Not that this could happen in our current socialist paradise. It's probably against the corpse's human rights :roll:
     
  4. I can't get hugely philosophical about this, preferable to sending out a bloke to do it though.
     
  5. Israeli isn't it? Surprised it didn't finish off by circumcising the corpse as a final insult - or towing it into a butcher's shop and dumping it in the pork section on a large pig.

    Amazed they let the pics get out - not very good pr, however sensible.

    "Number 5 is alive!"

    "Fcuk off, he's dead. Roll over him and see"

    Best PR possible to the suicide bombers
    Sends out the message:
    There is no glory in death,no paradise, no virgins waiting for you
    Instead were going to drag your body all round the streets to prove you've sh1t yourself drive over you with our little toy and then chuck you in a hole on the ground with a couple of pigs on top of you

    If it was me I'd have hooked a bacon butty in it's claw and rubbed him down with it the charged his relatives for the cost to recharge it's batteries and send them the clean up bill
     
  8. Does the Robot mutter "disassemble" as he drives over the sh1tbag?

    And more to the point, how does one get to be the driver of one of those robots? :twisted: And can you pimp them? Flamethrower ala Sir Killalot anyone?

    guys appologies only the top line of text is mine, the rest is clipped from the website. I think that its spot on to run the bastard over.
     
  10. I did hear tell that the Ottoman Janissaries were notably less eager to press home their normally ferocious attacks when word got out that the defenders of Vienna were doing something along those lines with the bodies of fallen attackers during one of the little periods of unpleasantness that punctuate European history.
     
  11. Good drills, but a "Disruptor- penetration demo" would possibly have produced a greater morale effect picture. Biscuits, does the author appear to sound like he believes the robot is acting autonomously? Surely it's only doing what the operator wants it to do?
