Submission + - Singapore holds "Terminator" robotics comp

duc0n writes: "Singapore's Defence Science and Technology Agency has just recently started a robotics competition named "TechX". The goal? Design a robot capable of entering an urban proving ground, navigating obstacles such as stairs, elevators and doors, and able to recognize and engage a specific target (using "a means that [they] will provide for the robot to mark the target"). All this is, of course, hauntingly similar to the Samsung sentry robot story from awhile back. Applications have been open since January, but the final event is not set to take place until August 2008."

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
