Well I’m relieved to hear this:

Inventors of a US military robot that powers itself by devouring everything in its path are trying to quash publicity that it will feed on human or animal flesh.

The Guardian says that the Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot ploughs through trees, grass and even, according to reports, dead bodies.

Is there a more chilling example of what Latour calls “hybrids”? Perhaps when I am able to pick my jaw up from the ground I’ll figure out why I’m so amazed at the invention of robots that eat.
