Seriously, though, Russia’s doing killer robots. Although the ones they’re demonstrating look totally joystick controlled, like drones, to me.
Video after the jump of robots from 2009 (thanks earthmanny!) uploaded by “russiadefence” with suitably threatening music. They look like headless Johnny Fives. Think they’ve figured out the heads and arms in the last four years?
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
