Proposed military robot would refuel by eating human bodies. What could possibly go wrong?

Has any of these scientist seen The Terminator? The Matrix? Helllllo!

Not content to have robots simply feed on widely available sunlight, which i still find frightening due to the fact it is almost an unlimited source of power, some GENIUS robo-pioneers have decided that this new robot should refuel on BIOMASS.

Lets take a second and look at what biomass is.. renewable energy source, biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. Key word in there.. LIVING. So here i am, Mr. Robot soldier, cant find any compost or plants to feed off of well when my AI evolves, which it will, what am i gonna do? EAT HUMANS.

In the presentation on the EATR ( THATS WHAT THEY ARE CALLED FOR REAL! ) robot’s construction and AI, it is shown that the robot creates plans for the next 50ms to the next 24 hours. Sure, if it’s in a foxhole with you, its one-hour plan is to sit tight and wait for backup. But if shutdown is imminent, it may start implementing Code Dahmer in its long-term strategy.

Seriously, 2012= Dawn of the Machine Age.
