Four-legged ROBOT HORSE can track fugitives across snow, ice and rocky terrain

It’s incredible artificial intelligence can easily rival other man-made machinery used in modern warfare thanks to its catalogue of features

Engineering students built an incredible robot ‘horse’ that wouldn’t look out of place in a futuristic war film. 

The SCalf is a four-legged robot that can maneuver different tricky terrains, track people on sight on keep its balance when attacked with a forceful blow – all while carrying 120kg of people or equipment . 

It was developed by a team of students from Shandong University in China. 

And the amazing AI is being hailed as one of the most incredible pieces of kit to date, thanks to its handy features.

Although still in the development stage, the robot could be used for a manner of different jobs.

Robotics are being increasingly used in warfare, and the quadriplegic ‘war horse’

By keeping its balance under pressure and carrying heavy weights, the robot could be manipulated to be used in the military.

And its tracking feature could come in handy during covert operations outside of the battlefield.

The robot is able to carry 120kg – around 18 stone

It is one metre tall, weighs 120kg (18 stone) and is able to carry its own weight – around the same as a young, real horse.

The robot was developed by a crack team of students, all aged under 25 years old.

It has drawn comparisons already to Google-owned Boston Dynamic’s dog robot called Spot.

But if the AI were to be used in battle, its rivals might be a little more fierce – say, a combat robot designed to be used in attack and ambush missions as well as for surveillance, reconnaissance, decoy and intelligence gathering.

The RoBattle was unveiled this week as Israel’s answer to battle-ready artificial intelligence.

It is made by the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) who are set to show their new ‘toy’ off at the Eurosatory expo in Paris, next week.

According to IAI RoBattle is equipped with a modular “robotic kit” which can be changed and swapped in and out depending on the military operation.

Operators can equip RoBattle with different payloads, including manipulator arms, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensors and radars, and remotely controlled weapons. Source

I am so grateful that there will be NO need for weapons in heaven!

    As soon as I saw the first paragraph I thought, these are the ‘horses’ (or ones like them) that will be used for the Battle of Armageddon. People have had a terrible time figuring out how there could be millions of live horses in that battle, and now I think we just may know.

    With God, all things ARE possible, and certainly all things will come to pass as He has said.

    VERY glad we will be watching from upon our own heavenly horses, behind our Returning King!

    1. And Robin – that’s exactly what I thought too. 2 reasons I did not state that: 1) I wanted to see the reactions of the readers (like yours) 2) I read that the birds will eat the carcasses of the horses and I wasn’t too sure about the metal AI robot horses being palatable. LOL!!

        Hmm, since there will be so many bodies, maybe some will be real horses and some will be robotic. Whatever, we will be far above it all! Hallelujuah!

        I think I said a while back, when I get discouraged, I look up and far across the skyline and imagine the billions of us who will be following Jesus at His Second Coming. It is one of my favorite daydreams…I probably really can’t comprehend the scope of it. And as unforgiving as it sounds, WE WILL ALL BE CHEERING in unison when the Antichrist and the False Prophet are thrown into the Lake of Fire! It’s awesome to be on the ‘winning’ side of this event.
