Ihr erinnert Euch an die fleischfressenden Roboter von neulich, die Mücken und Mäuse fangen, um sich selbst mit Energie zu versorgen? Das war noch Kunst, jetzt entwickelt das amerikanische Militär jedoch die richtige fleischfressende Variante. Als ob ich's geahnt hätte, als ich „People next“ schrieb.

From the file marked “Evidently, many scientists have never seen even one scary sci-fi movie,” the U.S. Defense Department is funding research into battlefield robots that fuel themselves by eating human corpses. What could possibly go wrong?

Since they apparently don’t own TVs or DVD players, researchers at Robotic Technology, Inc. are developing battlefield machines that can fuel themselves with collected organic matter. The experts say such fuel “could” include human corpses, but if you picked up anything on flesh-eating robots over the years you know they’ll ignore that tasty soybean field and make a chow line right to the nearest corpse. And, if the machines can’t find enough dead people to eat, they can always make new ones.
