Is This The Future??? Terminator Salvation

Building the Perfect Terminator

Obviously the new Terminator movie, is just that - a movie, but it is interesting that some of the technology in the public domain, suggests that Android Armies might not be so far off in the future. As many people are aware of the fact that, top secret Military Research and Development budgets often far out way civilian projects. "New" technologies in the civilian/public domain are often spin off's of projects previously Developed with a Military objective. Many of these videos, (some declassified "promotional") although not new, are an interesting to look at the possible direction, and battlefields of "Future Warfare."
