Add infrared and thermal imaging, with a belt feed nug and you have the first terminator, that will fetch your slippers.

Be afraid.

Which is a good reminder that soccer is the sport of mindless automatons. You have to wonder about a country where the political class really pushes the mindless herd mentality required for soccer. It is nothing but mob violence focused on a ball to get them trained to do the same to those the elite don't like.

Oh! Thank God! I just assumed they were built to do something useless.

Now they can replace overpaid, narcissistic, fugly, purple-haired asswipes.

Virtually indestructible? I think not. These things are remarkably fragile. Sure when they only have to perform for a half an hour on camera they look great, but I doubt they can operate in any environment not chosen by their builders. I don't think they can stop bullets, swim or climb through mud up to their knees. How about having them cross a dessert? I don't think so.

The Terminator should be required watching for every single robotics engineer on the planet!

And this is supposed to be a good thing? As others have pointed out this is going to ultimately lead to the world you had in the Terminator movies. Our future is looking more and more like a combination of 80s flicks the Terminator and "They Live".

They'll be chasing and ripping apart Wrong Thinkers in 30 years.

Only a soyboy would consider those virtually indestructible. You wouldn't even need a bat.
