    Sounds like George Lucus is running DARPA.

    Give it a little nuke pack for power. What could go wrong?

    Imagine walking down the street late at night and sensing the stealthy version approaching.

    Lots for the grand kids to look forward to.

    A predecessor to Atlas is Petman.

    It was developed to test special clothing, with sensors to measure various parameters.

    Less sophisticated than Atlas, it looks really creepy in Camo.

    Who needs high tech weapons?

    Banksy shows what can be done with lower level stuff, and the repercussions when the target is struck ...

    You need super tech to make high tech accessible.

    You do not need a stealth bomber to attack a bunch of ground troops, but infrared visors can help out a night raid by huge margins...

    The question is not how many billions we can spend on tech, but how much money hits the sweet spot? How much gets you the robot killer that works better, costs less, and risks less life than sending in people. The drones are a good example of that.

    Creepy for sure, but is it realistic to assume that nothing can be done?
