Since an audio disturbance at Skynet Research, more bloggers are taking a closer look at the robotic technology company. Joseph Harris, who sells bot kits, researched the technology behind Skynet's aquatic workbot and compared it to the RHex by Boston Dynamics.
Harris plans to research several of the other models, but the major buzz involving Skynet is new video on resistorbeterminated.com.
It's hard to determine where the video came from, but it appears to be a distress signal. The first man in the video introduces himself as Lieutenant James Walker. He's heavily armed, with two companions, who appear to be guarding a refuge. You may find it difficult to hear the audio, so I typed a transcript for you.
Walker: This is Lieutenant James Walker please respond.There's noone out there who can hear the report.
Unidentified woman :Hunter drones are in the area, they're making random search patterns.
Unidentified man: Our signal is broadcasting, it's just not being received here, or now. I think it's going into the past.
I cant wait to see what Warner Bros. comes up with next. The Terminator Salvation debut is less than two months away.
