Do you know anyone in defense services?

If so, then you need to shim him an article that is featured as one of he best inventions in 2006.

Man’s quest to replace man in electronic form that functions with artificial intelligence never wanes. There have been frequent news reports that features various kinds of robots that performs a given set of tasks.

(more than most troopers in full gear) and a system of wheels, tracks and joints that enable it to maneuver in all sorts of positions.
