“Fighting robot” is not a phrase I want to hear used seriously

Slashdot: MegaBots Raises $2.4M To Create League Of Human-Piloted, Giant Fighting Robots

Remember: A gun that can be used to hunt an animal can also be used to hunt a man.

More explicitly: I do not trust a dude in charge of a giant fighting robot not to, at some point, flip out and start crushing people.

An aside: I’ve lately started to believe that all of the wonders of human technology basically just boil down to a race between the creation of either really good fighting robots and really good sex robots, because honestly, human beings are just so disappointingly predictable.
