We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Futuristic Robot Ship Tracks Enemy Submarines

20th January 2013

Read it. And watch the video.

Although which ‘enemy’ has submarines worth tracking is left unmentioned.

I’m waiting for

  1. When one of these things hits a civilian (or, worse, another military) vessel.
  2. When one of these things is hijacked by Somali or Malay pirates.
  3. When one of these starts tracking a Chinese submarine and is blown up for its trouble. All the U.S. will do is complain, since that’s all they’ve ever done when their aircraft are attacked and forced down. If, that is, the Chinese don’t just say, ‘Nah, that wasn’t our submarine. We all know how you capitalist dogs lie.’
