Glaive To Hunt Down Osama?
Is this magical weapon the inspiration for a new fight against terrorism?
The United States Air Force has recently teamed up with Triton Industries out of Massachusetts to develop a robotic frisbee that kills badguys. I call it a killer frisbee. They call it a Modular Disc-Wing Urban Close Munition.
Here's how it works:
These robotic frisbees will be shot up into the air using something resembling those skeet disc launchers. While in the air, they will be remote controlled by soldiers on the ground. These robotic discs can also operate on their own if necessary.
Now, here's where the fun begins. The frisbees, when coming upon some terrorist hiding behind a cave or some rocks, will shoot these warheads that explode and fire armor-piercing molten metal, shredding anything in its way. It can fire in one concentrated spot, acting as a bunker buster, or it can disperse itself to mow-down a large group of insurgents.
What makes these killer discs so great is that the good guys can control them while staying out of harm's way, the discs are incredibly maneuverable, and they can attack a single person or a group of hostiles. It makes killing so more incredibly safer!
I think weapons designers should continue to draw from sci-fi movies for their ideas.
Star Wars lightsabers. I want one. I want one now.
Alien's robot suit. Remember when Ripley climbed inside that huge mech suit to rescue the little girl? In the suit, she told the alien to "leave her alone, you bitch!" and went toe-to-toe with the creature. These mech suits would come in handy also when stuck in traffic.
Star Trek's beaming/teleport technology. Imagine if we could transport ourselves anywhere anytime. It could also revolutionize pizza delivery.
