Army Skips Skynet, Goes Straight To Voltron

To Create the Perfect Machine, Soldiers Build a Robot Out of Robots:

Over at Fort Benning, soldiers at the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment aren’t waiting for military robot makers to come up with the right mix of robotic capabilities. Putting that military penchant for improvisation into practice, soldiers there are mashing up their military robots to give themselves the capabilities they want, piggybacking one robot on top of the other until they get the right mix of gear.

All right, maybe it’s not so much Voltron as Capsela. But you have to crawl before you walk.
