Submission + - South Korea deploys killer robot in DMZ (

shikaisi writes: Not content with just killing people in computer games, South Korea has gone one better and is deploying remotely controlled sentry robots on the border with the north. According to the article "If the command centre operator cannot identify possible intruders through the robot's audio or video communications system, the operator can order it to fire its gun or 40mm automatic grenade launcher." I hope that word "cannot" instead of "can" is a journalistic error and not a shoot-to-kill policy.
