An Isreali defense manufacturer today revealed their new portable robot that’s capable of going into dangerous war zones and taking down enemies on its own (with the aid of a wireless remote control and built-in video camera).

The robot’s maker, Elbit Systems, Ltd., claims that the rugged, dual-treaded robot can climb stairs and challenging surfaces like rubble without a problem. In addition to its fighting duties, the robot can be used for bomb detection and disposal.

I certainly wouldn’t want to run into one of these in a dark alley.
