The Russian military showed that it’s not lagged behind in technological development. On the background of raising tensions with the United States, it launches a new terminator-style killer robot. The robot looks like it has just stepped down from a sci-fi movie set.

The new technology is named F.E.D.O.R. and is able to shoot guns as its hands and fingers are very mobile and look terrifying. F.E.D.O.R. will also be able to navigate the terrain, drive a car and work independently in an urban environment. It is the product of collaboration between a Russian tech company and military research agency.
According to director of Russia’s Advanced Research Fund this killer machine “was designed as an android able to replace humans in high-risk areas, such as rescue operations”.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister said that F.E.D.O.R. is not a Terminator, but artificial intelligence and shooting helps to teach the android to set priorities and make decisions.
