The world just got more dangerous with robots that shoot at will

Looks like Judgement Day is getting closer:

Seoul plans to deploy robots with combat capability along the fortified inter-Korean border as part of revamped security measures to deter North Korean infiltration.
"The ministry is considering robots which could detect, trace and hit targets automatically or be controlled remotely by operators," said a ministry of public affairs spokeperson.

One option is to upgrade the Aegis Robot (picture above) that was deployed to Iraq last October. The robot is equipped with a temperature and image sensor to track a suspected target and has an auto-firing capability.
