Wow, talk about a dystopic future

This is some scary stuff.
As the name implies, Cheetah is designed to be a four-legged robot with a flexible spine and articulated head (and potentially a tail) that runs faster than the fastest human. In addition to raw speed, Cheetah’s makers promise that it will have the agility to make tight turns so that it can “zigzag to chase and evade” and be able to stop on a dime.
The project is being run out of Darpa, which should give one pause. Darpa is the kind of place that would build these things and install brain scanners as part of the standard software:
The Malintent system is in its 'test' stage at the moment, but is said to be able to predict whether or not a person will be threatening on a flight, by looking for non-verbal clues.
Hey, if I thought of it, you KNOW they have.

Like Dr. Vidiot says, at some point, they won't have to build any more jails because all of society will be a jail.
