Re: Remember the Boston dynamics four legged robots that made the hair on your neck stand. Look now. Weaponized.
The fear of these things is a bit absurd. They could kill you just as easily today if they wanted to, with a drone strike, dews, poisons, etc. You are at their mercy no matter what method of execution they choose to deploy.

How many of these things do you think they really have? Enough to patrol an entire city? Because even that would cost in the high billions, probably.
 Quoting: Rou


See the way you're framing this ASSUMES (very wrongly) that money works the same for them as it does for us, it doesn't.

Also you're off by a large number of zeros on how many it'd cost to patrol a small city.

At absolute most one of those including gun, casing, and robot is $100-$150k (probably more like 50-70k or even less) which puts you in the 10-20 per million dollars range. If you go to 1/3 overlapping fires 20 of these can cover a frontage of multiple miles to one mile deep.

Considering how you'd actually WANT to deploy them this means that 10-20 million dollars worth of them could make a shockingly large town/suburb a murderously deadly place to be. So with a billion dollars you could easily control the key outlying suburbs in a ring around a single good size urban metropolitan zone. As forces go, that's staggeringly cheap.

But again, all that assumes money works the same for them as it does for us, which it doesn't.

The only REAL LIMIT they would have on these is the total number they can manufacture, support, and keep in the field at any given time. That number is a lot less easy to pin down but figure that this year and next year it's probably somewhere between $100 million and a billion dollars worth of them escalating higher over time and as they get sustainment and back end supply lines sorted out.

This is the glaring massive problem with these conversations on GLP though, people here still honestly think 1 billion dollars much less 10 or a 100 is a lot of money when it stopped being about money as we think of it/count it at least a decade or two ago.

The dollar cost argument is entirely a red herring that misses what's going on.

Practice your roping skills.
Rope them like a goat and take them out with an angle grinder when they are down.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77504347


Agree. Rope may be the most effective against them. Black paint as well if they aren't equipped with sonar.
 Quoting: Dustybunny


You better have a dozen other friends making sure that one is actually alone before you try to rope it or you're going to take a 6.5 Creed bullet to the face out of the blue about the time the rope slides around one of them.

Remember, 1200 METERS!

If another one is within 1200 meters when you let that rope lasso fly it will already have fired it's first shot before your body can follow through and make sure the lasso flies true.

They also won't be alone, they will be supported by disturbingly quiet ISR uav which will be keeping the robo dog you're stalking and it's buddy overwatching the one you're stalking and angling to shoot you before you can hurt the one you're stalking informed on exactly where you are.

This is something to understand, if these get used...

You will NEVER be facing just one of them. They will never be alone without ISR assets overhead passing information to them about what and who is on the ground near them and they're likely to have humans nearby too who will also be protecting them/working with them.

You can't treat these as a stand alone threat that will be operating unsupported/alone because that's not how they use these systems.

If you're envisioning fighting these things one on one you've already missed the point of what they are/how they're going to operate.

A crossbow.

Bolts made from neodymium magnets.

Good for taking out 5G towers as well.

It is really pretty easy to build an EMP "gun".

There are even how-to vids up on youtube.

You can scale them up to any size, should the cyborgs get unleashed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80713537


An easy to make emp device? Doubt it's easy to make. What energy source will drive it? AAA batteries? The grid will be down before these things are walking up the block.
 Quoting: Dustybunny


If you don’t know electronics just say that… lol

They are super fucking simple to make…

So are nets, and traps for robots…

You think this is gonna be difficult, it’s gonna be fun!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78008350


Well hate to burst your bubble emptards, but the military has been successfully designing aircraft and equipment to be EMP hardened and if you think the military grade robots, that are ready to hit the streets won't be, well then I have a bridge to sell you.

Not only that random emp blasts strong enough to take down a bot is going to take out all electronics around you, even your own.

I can't wait to beat that assemblage of Chinese-made scrap to death with its own gun.
