Turret Defense Systems and Portal

South Korean military officials and weapon designers have come up with what they are calling the "Super aEgis II".  This weapon is a robotic turret capable of acquiring a human target during the day or night, through rain and high winds, up to 3 km away.  This machine is awesome to say the least.  It also requires little to no human interaction.  Though this could aid South Korea in their ongoing struggle against North Korea, I would personally love to see the U.S. come up with something similar and mount it to fences along the southern border of the states in order to reduce illegal immigration as well as drug trafficking through the border.  If you'd like to take a look at this pretty sweet piece of machinery go here.










Today is the last day to get Portal 2 for a discounted price from steam.  I recommend buying it from steam as it will cost you $45 today and $50 tomorrow vs. $60 for the Xbox 360.  Along with this you'll be looking at paying the $60 per year charge to play online with friends.  I went ahead and purchased my copy on Thursday of last week and then replayed Portal (which came with the purchase of Portal 2) in anticipation of the games release tonight/tomorrow.  I'll for sure be staying up at least for a little bit playing with friends.

Be on the lookout this week for another post from me where *hopefully* i'll be sharing a video which could be quite interesting.  Here's hoping I can finish it and share it with y'all.

  9. I LOL'd at the demo video of the turret. Freakin awesome. We need it. Agree on the boarder placement. Budget solution right here. And it will give more jobs when you have to pay for repair crew. Not sure on what the boarder patrol will do but most likely the military groups will be put somewhere else. Nice first topic.
