    Program it to box and let's find some folks willing to cage-fight it for $1000 worth of prize money.
    Put that on pay per view.
    It's a fortune of entertainment, just waiting to be made.

    From the YouTube comments on the video: "Hold it down and load Windows Vista on it".

    We may need to automate that as a defensive countermeasure before we get too far down this AI/robotics path....

    I'd still be confident with 30 available rounds of 9mm I could stop that nightmare if I needed to!

    Would be awesome if they sacrificed one to small arms fire just to see how little it takes to make it go bonkers and run into a wall.

    Until it comes out of the lab and the military adds armor plating.

    On a large scale basis attacking the CPU is a viable option. But you'd need something a bit more robust than Vista. :lol:

    Break out the Windows Me dev team to write some REAL garbage for it.

    I can think for myself and I have a rule that says I can't harm a human. Wait, I can think for myself. Screw that rule.

    Yeah, and they are all controlled by and through Skynet.

    I better dig up more AP rounds.
