The world has officially taken the next step towards a dystopian nightmare where autonomous robots roam the countryside, oppressing the puny humans. Specifically I am talking about the US Navy, which today released footage of their new autonomous drone, which has successfully taken off and landed from an aircraft carrier without human intervention.
According to The Verge, the drones have not yet been weaponised. However, coming so shortly after the US Navy put into operation a laser that can knock planes out of the sky and “disable” boats, and in the hands of the world's most trigger happy, hypocritical and self righteous super power, we are officially entering dystopian science fiction territory. Seriously, how long to the launch of sky net?
