The ultimate sentry gun...coming soon to a DMZ near you

Well now Aaron Rasmussen can rest in peace. Someone has finally built a "real" sentry gun.

Apparently Samsung has developed an actual autonomous sentry gun that tracks and recognizes humans. The device is intended for deployment in the DMZ between N and S Korea. Included in the article is a nifty video that's both funny and yet very...disturbing.

However, the following line pretty much sums it up, methinks:

It has a sophisticated pattern recognition which can detect the difference between humans and trees, and a 5.5mm machine-gun.
Oh boy. It can tell the difference between trees and humans.

And it has a gun.

("Mr. Oak, put down your branches. You have 20 seconds to comply...")
