From robot gossip, the Protector Unmanned Surface Vehicle:
The Protector is armed with with a Raphael stabilized mini-Typhoon weapon system and a variety of stabilized cameras, radar and navigation gear. It is described as 'highly autonomous' and can be controlled remotely from land-based or marine stations.
For some reason I think of robot boats as being cuter than most other kinds of robots. It would help if the machine gun were replaced by a water cannon... or a fudge cannon. “Peanut butter squad, attack! Cut the chatter, chocolate walnut five.”

I don't think of this boat as cute at all. I don't quite know why, I think it has to do with growing up on the Gulf of Mexico, and being accustomed to the idea of hopping on a boat and sailing wherever I wanted to. Something like this, seems like its main result would be to get in people's way, though I am sure that it would be sold as having some other more noble purpose.
It looks pretty sinister to me. But I guess it does look a bit duck-like, on second glance.
plzzzzzz send me details of ciruitary and all theories
this is like the bomb how did it take to build
