Robots vs. Pirates

2007-11-01 18:17:29.680002+00 by petronius 2 comments

Apparently piracy off the coast of Somalia is heating up again. I saw one report that sailors from a US destroyer boarded a North Korean vessel there the other day and helped the crew mop up a gang of locals who had tried to capture the ship. Now Popular Mechanics reports that the US may make use of armed robot speedboats to help in checking out suspicious vessels. Hmm...Robots vs. Pirates sounds like the setup for a Japanese anime......
