    The problem with all that shit is the inventors/designers never had to
    lug it along climbing in and out of a HMMWV or Bradley; never tried to
    use it kicking down doors.

    Area Denial is only as good as the IFF. Another hunk of shit for a grunt
    to lug around. You gotta' have a transponder or your own robots will
    shoot the shit out of you.

    And an automatic "sentry" pointer & shooter could be an accessory to a
    DSLR.

    Sounds good for spare time, but when living in an foxhole and shitting
    in your helmet, spare time was an unaffordble commodity - that's why we
    were so eager to kill something so we could "clean house". :) We
    delivered our ordinance wearing our boots. If we were still wearing
    them after the bang, mission accomplished. Back then, a smart bomb was
    a hand-thrown satchel charge with a unpredictable toaster timer. Some
    of us burned the toast and went home sooner than others.

    I like good restaurants, especially when you can see the name of the
    place *before* you order. :)

    And that has what to do with the discusion? The guy designed an automated
    sentry weapon, not a remote controlled one.

    It's a really piss poor image, but that looks like the rear end of an
    old US Army M-60 Tank. So, just how good is the discrimination circuit
    that keeps it from shooting at the good guys (defined: good guys = our
    guys)?

    From what little I could see in the video it does a grand job of
    shooting up our own stuff. Is it "smart" enough to know to NOT shoot our
    own stuff?

    Some sort of IFF might solve that problem.

    More shit you got to carry around, and since it's gonna' be made by the
    lowest bidder (assuming it is actually bid out), it's gonna' break when
    you need it most.

    Me too, but it'd work better with a Glock.
    OTOH paint balls are more fun and the target can be reused ... with
    enough persuasation.

    What? You never heard the litany, "This for work this is for fun"...
    "This is my weapon and this is my gun"...
