Robot Sentry Peppers Targets with Paintball Gun [Video]

We’ve all heard (and seen) the Doomsday scenarios: we make advanced robots, they become self-aware, and then the end of all humanity happens. Science-fiction to most, but a real worry for others out there in the world. In the case of this little robot sentry, which doesn’t actually walk around in the video, we can see where some paranoid folks would get the wrong idea, especially if it were to get some kind of glowing red eye, and start referring to itself in the first person.

The Robotic Paintball Gun Sentry is actually available to the masses, in a do it yourself kit. That’s right — you can make one for yourself. If you’re on a paintball team, this guy could definitely change the tide of war. And, with that being said, let’s try to make sure that bigger versions of this guy, with larger (more dangerous) guns don’t ever happen, okay?
