DARPA Contracts for Intelligent Humanoid Robots
If you’re one of the people that’s been skeptical that our own military would be willing to detain U.S. citizens indefinitely under the NDAA, either in FEMA camps or elsewhere, this may clarify things a bit.
And don’t even start with the “conspiracy theory” crap. FEMA camps are everywhere. Even Glenn Beck tried to debunk them as myth, but couldn’t due to all the evidence.
Moving on, it seems that the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has contracted with Boston Dynamics, Inc. to produce intelligent humanoid robots that can act without supervision.
In case you aren’t familiar, Boston Dynamics is the company that already has the BigDog, CHEETAH, and RiSE robots on their resume.
BigDog can carry 340 lbs, and easily recovers its balance, CHEETAH can run at 18 mph, and RiSE can scale vertical objects such as buildings.
In addition, the company has already created humanoid robots. They are currently working on one called PETMAN.
Seeing these things in action is much creepier than just reading about them, so here are videos that exhibit each of these robots.
CHEETAH – Robot that Gallops 18 mph
RiSE – Vertical Climbing Robot
PETMAN Humanoid Robots
Doesn’t that make your blood run cold?
And what in the world does the government need humanoid robots for?
The Department of Defense’s strategic plan calls for the Joint Force to conduct humanitarian, disaster relief and related operations. The plan identifies requirements to extend aid to victims of natural or man-made disasters and conduct evacuation operations. Some disasters, however, due to grave risks to the health and wellbeing of rescue and aid workers, prove too great in scale or scope for timely and effective human response. The DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) will attempt to address this capability gap by promoting innovation in robotic technology for disaster-response operations.
The primary technical goal of the DRC is to develop ground robots capable of executing complex tasks in dangerous, degraded, human-engineered environments. Competitors in the DRC are expected to focus on robots that can use standard tools and equipment commonly available in human environments, ranging from hand tools to vehicles, with an emphasis on adaptability to tools with diverse specifications.
To achieve its goal, the DRC aims to advance the current state of the art in the enabling technologies of supervised autonomy in perception and decision-making, mounted and dismounted mobility, dexterity, strength, and platform endurance. Success with supervised autonomy, in particular, could allow control of robots by non-expert operators, lower the operator’s workload, and allow effective operation even with low-fidelity (low bandwidth, high latency, intermittent) communications.
If these things can operate “tools” (weapons?) and vehicles, it’s very easy to see how they may be used for less than benign purposes, such as to guard people in FEMA camps, apprehend those who do not comply with unconstitutional laws, or exterminate those oppose the NWO agenda.
You see, even the most hardened military or law enforcement official could succumb to mercy and compassion if ordered to capture or kill their fellow citizens. With robots, they won’t have to worry about that. Robots will crush and annihilate without hesitation.
We’re crossing into very dangerous and frightening territory.
