The world's most famous machine gun manufacturer has now created a war robot.
The Kalashnikov business group - which has created one of the most powerful rifles available - has created a droid which possesses a rather high level of artificial intelligence.
The robot is able to determine its defined objective, shoot it at its own discretion, and decide when to fire its weapons without human operators.
Its A.I programming even enables it to learn from its experiences. Which is slightly troubling.
According to news site CCM, the droid incorporates the Kalashnikov PK, one of the most powerful machine guns on the market.
The company demonstrated the robot's capabilities to Russian President Vladimir Putin on a recent visit to the production factory. However it won't be fully released until August, to coincide with an arms fair in Moscow.
