Which movie comes to mind? Robocop? Terminator? Or perhaps you are reminded of the DARPA robot dog? One things for sure; you don’t invest in this kind of tech for something temporary. Welcome to The New Normal. MH

Deployment part of a larger initiative to police people during coronavirus crisis
A four-legged ‘robot dog’ fitted with cameras is now patrolling a popular park in Singapore to enforce the social distancing measures of local authorities.
Instead of barking, the semi-autonomous robot – of Boston Dynamics fame – named “Spot” speaks ‘softly’ in a prerecorded English female voice.
“For your own safety and for those around you, please stand at least one meter apart. Thank you,” Spot tells park visitors. “Let’s keep Singapore healthy.”
The Friday launch of Spot at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is part of a two-week trial by the National Parks Board (NParks) in tandem with Smart Nation and Digital Government Group (SNDGG).
If the trial is deemed a success, Spot will be deployed in the morning and during evening peak hours.
Despite Spot’s cameras being designed to help it estimate the number of park visitors present in the area, authorities claim the device can’t collect personal data or track specific individuals.
Previously, Infowars covered advancements of this and similar technology.
At the time, we quipped how these robots would be put to use. We weren’t mistaken.
One question remains: will people eventually be forced to show “immune passports” or similar documentation to a more sophisticated iteration of this machine in the near future?
Martin comments: Another bit of science fiction comes to mind. The background story to Frank Herbert’s Dune was a rebellion against “thinking machines” that essentially turned humans into slaves (except for the elite controllers one assumes). With all the drones and robots flitting about issuing orders it sure looks like we’re well down the track to enslavement. So, who’s going to be the first to start throwing rocks?
