Pentagon unveils new 'blob' robot

The Pentagon has unveiled a new robot that's most a blob of goo. Called the "chemical robot," or ChemBot, it moves by changing its shape, by inflating and deflating different areas. Researchers say the research could lead to robots that can seep through cracks, and help rescue people trapped in collapsed buildings.

Wow, that's the most complex description of a "balloon" that I have ever heard! I guess you can't get a $50M DARPA contract calling it a balloon...

One day the scientists will give it teeth and eyeballs, just for fun not realizing that it has developed self-awareness. Then it will go on a killing rampage eating us all. Make them stop developing this future monster!!!
