Robots WILL Kill Us All

While this sounds cool as hell, it certainly gives me a bit of the heebie jeebies. The Pentagon has successfully launched a drone swarm from three F-18 hornets...that will seek you out and peel your skin off with their tiny propellers. (I made that last part up, but you know its true.)

"Perdix are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals, they are a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting to each other like swarms in nature," said William Roper, director of the Pentagon's Strategic Capabilities Office. "Because every Perdix communicates and collaborates with every other Perdix, the swarm has no leader and can gracefully adapt to drones entering or exiting the team."

Of course this comes on the back of No Killer Robots....I am sure these drone swarms will be used for delivering 103 pizzas to the guys on the front lines. Not that we don't think that is an awesome idea.
