Darpa's AVATAR Project
DARPA is looking to put soldier controlled bi-pedal robots on the battlefield. Think Terminator meets Avatar. The agency has set aside $7 million of it's $2.8 billion 2012 budget to develop an "Avatar program" that will "develop interfaces and algorithms to enable a soldier to effectively partner with a semi-autonomous bi-pedal machine and allow it to act as the soldier's surrogate."

They say it was created just to test clothing.
That is their statement on their webpage.
Do you believe that?




Meet the new man on the battlefield.
I for one welcome our new robot overlords.

PETMAN was built on whatever budget funds the testing of equipment and clothing. So, the mechanical technology has no need to show up in that funding.

Re: Darpa's AVATAR Project
The AVATAR movie, btw, presents a backwards version of an Ascended AVATAR body/consciousness. Most ironic.

If I have an AVATAR body/consciousness, most likely you do too. Most humans should have one.

There are THOSE who would KILL to keep this INFO suppressed. HAHA, they're time is up!
