Terminator may be a Vegetarian

Terminator may be a Vegetarian

Ever wondered what the Terminator might have for breakfast before a hard day out .. um .. terminating? Well wonder no more! The peaceable folk over at the Pentagon have assured us all that their latest military robot is a vegetarian. This announcement came after rumours that their self-sufficient robot may eat human corpses.

"We completely understand the public's concern about futuristic robots feeding on the human population, but that is not our mission," said Harry Schoell, the chief executive of Cyclone Power Technologies - one of the companies behind the machine. Phew! I'll sleep a little easier tonight, knowing we don't have to also worry about robots with a taste for flesh.

Dr Finkelstein (no joke that's his name) of Robotic Technology Inc. - another of the companies working on the project - explained that EATR (aka Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot) has in-built sensors to determine if something is animal, vegetable or mineral. The robot's diet mainly consists of bark, twigs and other plant matter.

As admirable as vegetarian war machines may be (not), I'm personally more impressed by these super strength vegetarians.

Dr Finkelstein is good, but did anyone else notice the fact that this robot is actually called 'eatr' (eater) lol. What a creative name for a robot that eats. 'eater.'
