The Terminator is here—watch Russian robot fire at targets with dual-wielding pistols
Because the world isn’t already terrifying enough.
A Russian robot is scheduled to exit the Earth’s atmosphere in 2021, but it first needs to learn some basic skills before beginning its voyage. “FEDOR” already knows how to drive and put out a fire, but what happens if it gets ambushed by extraterrestrials?
A new video uploaded Friday by Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister, shows the “cyber cosmonaut” firing off dual-wielding pistols with superhuman accuracy:

“We are not creating a Terminator, but artificial intelligence that will be of great practical significance in various fields,” Rogozin tries to assure us.
Even if FEDOR isn’t the start of Skynet, this terrifying new video certainly won’t quell the world’s surging fear of war. Let’s just hope its 2021 flight aboard Russia’s Federation spacecraft goes off without a hitch so it can go as far away from us as possible.
