Robots are Iron (Wo)Men? This one is a Jeelyfish!

One always thinks of robots as mechanical monsters with jointed limbs ambs and a stiff jerky gait. Virginia tech has created Robojelly, a carbon nanotube based hydrogen powered jelly fish that seems capable of giving a run for the money to any live jelly fish.

I searched the CE site before posting. I am surprised that this item on voice did not come up.

Sir is this true that we are moving towards robot wars , because history has given enough proof about how humans can use a life saving technology into an life threatening one .

Some sort of robots are already in defence applications for surveillance. The drone planes used in anti Taliban strikes are an example of actual combat use.
The best will be if no humans are used at all. The robots can destroy each other. Ultimately may be we will fight only war games on giant monitors!

sir weapons was created for killing humans and i think it will be always used for this purpose only , and when there is a war some lives are always lost

Wars are always bad, irrespective of who is right or wrong. Ultimately more innocents die than soldiers. War is the prime example of man's inhumanity to man.
