T1 Terminators deployed by S. Korea along DMZ

T1 Terminator

Fictional T1 Terminator from Terminator 3

From the Telegraph via Cryptogon:

It quoted an unidentified military official as saying the ministry would deploy sentry robots along the world’s last Cold War frontier if the test was successful.

The robot uses heat and motion detectors to sense possible threats, and alerts command centres, Yonhap said.

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.

South Korea is also developing highly sophisticated combat robots armed with weapons and sensors that could complement human soldiers on battlefields.

Coming to a “theater” near you. Paging John Connor, please pickup a white courtesy phone.
